About this title


Tucked in his small corner of Kansas, a farm boy dreams of becoming an airline pilot, a dream that seems as unreachable as the clouds in the Kansas sky. But when Pearl Harbor is attacked, suddenly his dream is within reach. He finds himself at the controls of a B-17 bomber, gaining experience he is certain will lead to an airline career after the war.

War has a way of changing destinies, though, and when confronted with that harsh reality he is forced to reconcile what's most important to him—the dream he can't have, or the life he can. And sometimes, he learns, dreams have a way of coming true in ways that we never expect.

About the Author:

Del Hayes is a retired electrical engineer, and was involved in programs such as the Nike Zeus anti-missle missile, and airport surveillance radars used at major airports. He was responsible for flight-test certification for Instrument Flight Rules of the first Loran unit for general aviation. He and his son owned and operated custom audio sales and installation businesses, and he is now a consulting engineer for the custom audio/video installation industry. Del is a forty-plus year private pilot, has flown twenty-four types of aircraft and flown in all states except Hawaii.
He also is owner of Del Hayes Press, publishing both his own books and selected books for other authors. He is the author of two novels and two non-fiction books, as well as several technical articles. 

He and Colleen, his wife of fifty-five years, live near Dallas, Texas, and are active in their Presbyterian church. They have three children and ten grandchildren.
