9781604819502: VANISHING CONTRAILS: The Complete Memoirs of Lt. Col. James Franklin Grey, USAF Ret.

Get to know an American aviator who fought in the great air wars over Europe during World War II and steered a B-29 right through the center of a mushroom cloud from an atom bomb blast, among other aerial feats and accomplishments. From his youth during the Great Depression to his 22-year career in the U.S. Air Force to his life as a civilian and private pilot, Mr. Grey skillfully weaves together the events happening in the world with those occurring in his life. His voice is unique, his stories human and compelling. Readers will appreciate both his eloquence and candor. Vanishing Contrails is much more than just the recollections of a retired pilot. It speaks to the vanishing of an entire way of life and the code by which so many members of Mr. Grey's generation (the "greatest") lived their lives.
