From drug-smuggling pilots to missing planes, a humorous look at the bizarre stories of the aviation industry
It is surprising how little has been written about some of the more bizarre inner workings of the aviation industry. This hilarious collection of stories addresses that and presents the many scandals and scams that have plagued the aviation industry but amused everyone else. It includes the Zambian man who attempted to beat world superpowers in the Space Race with the help of a 15-year-old girl and a 40-gallon oil drum; skydiving smugglers and their novel way of trafficking cocaine; an account of the only unsolved U.S. airline hijacking in history; and the man who wanted to restart flights from Durham to London and believed his proposed airline was "backed by God." This book is perfect for aviation fans and readers looking for a laugh.
