Overview

The Great Depression, Dust Bowl, and a Kansas tornado had left the Barber family reeling. Then came WW II and three sons were called to service. Army Air Corps planes began flying low level missions over the farm, capturing the imagination of yet a younger son, Paul. In this story of dedication and excellence, Paul Barber follows his dream, becomes an Air Force pilot, commands a flying unit, and with a simple statement, “Another Day in Which to Excel,” challenges himself, his crews, and his family to be their very best. You will see the Cuban Missile Crisis from his vantage point; tag along on high-speed, high-altitude air-refueling missions; learn how the U.S. won the peace during the Cold War with the Soviets; feel the stress on his flight crews in the Vietnam War; and view near tragedies during critical phases of flight.
