About the Author

Rebecca Wallick is the daughter of legendary Boeing test pilot S. L. “Lew” Wallick. While not a pilot herself (despite her father’s best efforts), she has always had a keen interest in collecting and preserving the aviation history she witnessed growing up. Rebecca earned a degree in history at the University of Washington and law degree at Seattle University. After thirty years of practicing law and writing on the side, she is finally flipping the tables and writing full time (with a little law on the side). Rebecca resides in Kirkland, Washington with her dog Finn MacCool.

Charming Memoir For an insider view on commercial aviation and what it was like to be a test pilot, this book is both fascinating and heart-warming. Author Rebecca Wallick grew up in the "family-oriented, aw-shucks can-do geeky engineering" culture of Boeing aeronautics in Seattle since her father was a Boeing test pilot. My father worked for Kodak in Rochester at the same time, so in many ways, I can related to Wallick's childhood. Her book inspires me to share the great stories of his career, although I can't say he ever rolled a place! Wallick aimed to have this memoir published on the 51st anniversary of the first flight of the 727, her father's favorite airplane. I love memoirs, particularly ones from a woman's point of view of a man's world. Other books like this that I enjoy are An Aviator's Wife by Charles Lindberg's wife and Wondrous Beauty about Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte.
