About this title:

Synopsis:

Death-defying adventure, big money, world travel, sex, booze – this true tale has it all.

War Correspondent Anne Darling described the pilots of Air AMERICA as "CIA Super Pilots." Captain Collier was one of those "Super Pilots". This is his story.

Captain Collier teamed up with his best Vietnam helicopter pilot buddy, Gary, and the two rascals shared enough adventure to make any novel seem lame. Flying combat in mountainous and weather-hostile Laos was some of the most challenging ever experienced by any pilot, any time, any war. Making fabulous money and having airline benefits allowed them to live an exotic lifestyle, to travel the world on their monthly R&Rs, and to chase and catch more than a few stewardesses from several different airlines.

Air America operated an entire fleet of aircraft out of the "secret CIA air base" at Long Tieng. For years it ranked as one of the busiest airports in the world as the CIA supported the Laotian Army in its efforts to repel the army of North Vietnam intent on conquering all of Laos.
