Clyde Roach tells the story of his long career with Eastern Air Lines. It's
all there: from his boyhood in Miami, Fl. through war-time experiences
dropping airborne troops from a C-47 over Normandy, to crash landing a
Boeing 727 at Carswell Air Force Base, ditching in the English Channel and
investigating the crash of Arrow Air DC-8 at Gander Newfoundland which cost
the lives of 250 servicemen.
