9781557500861: Wonderful Flying Machines: A History of U.S. Coast Guard Helicopters

Wonderful Flying Machines is an important addition to aviation lore because it chronicles the bureaucratic hurdles and internecine feud between fixed-wing-only hard-liners and a very few who had a visionary's zeal. But it is much more than that; it also takes the reader on an actual rescue mission and describes the experience from both inside the helo and from the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic. This mental journey will leave no reader unmoved.
