The recounted experiences include several facets of aviation with which the author was personally involved; airline, military, private, charter and corporate. Also at the end of several of these are postscripts which contain some personal observations that were shaped by these aviation occurrences.
The anecdotes range from humorous to terrifying; from disbelief to amazement. They address fear of flying for passengers and gross incompetence in high places. Some aviation bureaucrats and politicians are exposed for their ignorance and arrogance.
Midair collisions, near misses in the air, near crashes with the ground and the loss of friends in crashes serve to reinforce the old aviation adage: "A superior pilot is one who uses his superior judgment to avoid situations requiring his superior skill!"
