Overview

The A to Z of flying jargon is the subject of Flying Can Be Fun , a humorous look at the world of flight. Award-winning cartoonist Dick Locher has teamed up with award-winning humorist Michael Kilian to create the funniest illustrated dictionary of flight lingo available anywhere.
A is for aerial, "that part of the aircraft most frequently broken off during walk-around pre-flight inspection to see if anything is broken off." C is for coordinates, "flying clothing worn by fashionable female pilots." G is for ground speed, "what airspeed becomes upon landing." I is for icing, "what frequently happens to pilots who think that flying through winter thunderstorms is a piece of cake." S is for spin, "what makes the world go 'round when you're looking at it directly through a windscreen." And W is for wilco, "Roger's last name," of course.
Dick Locher is the Chicago Tribune's Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist. An Air Force pilot from 1951 to 1953 and now a captain in the Air
Force Reserve, he learned to fly in an old Mitchell B-25 bomber and later piloted B-47s, B-58s, and F-94s. Locher designed the world's first fly-powered airplane. He illustrates the world-famous comic strip Dick Tracy and he's drawn the box art for Mattel-Monogram model airplanes. Locher's paintings of airplanes hang in the Air Force Museum gallery in Colorado Springs.
Michael Kilian is a Chicago Tribune humorist whose columns are distributed to more than 100 newspapers in the United States and Canada. A captain in the
U.S. Air Force Civil Air Patrol, he flew general aviation aircraft and sailplanes in the Midwest. He is also sports editor for the Encyclopedia
Britannica Book of the Year and author of five other books.

The A to Z of flying jargon is the subject of "Flying Can Be Fun," the funniest illustrated dictionary of flying jargon available anywhere.
