Lock your shoulder harness and hang on tight to Wings of Blue, four hair-raising stories of jungle aviation from the author of Memories of an Emerald World! Based on the author’s years as a counterdrug pilot in Central and South America, these tales prove that youthful enthusiasm and sturdy technology can make up for a lot of inexperience when it comes to flying in uncontrolled, uncharted, and just plain unpredictable airspace. Whether it’s carrying food to an outpost in Ecuador, falling through the night sky over Panama, or hanging on for dear life in the thunderstorm of a century, Wings of Blue demonstrates beyond doubt what every pilot knows: that it’s better to be lucky than good. Bleriot tells wonderful tales of the jungle and airplanes – and the flyers who bring the two together.
