About this title


Michael Bleriot flew airlift support to counterdrug missions in Central and South America in the early 1990s. He was stationed at Howard Air Base in Panama, on the edge of the former Canal Zone, and based the stories from his first book, Memories of an Emerald World, there. The Jungle Express is a sequel to that volume. It takes the action from Panama to the jungle basins of Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador, and shows what good pilots and bad pilots both can do with a reliable machine. The plane, the C-27 Spartan, is the main character in all the stories. It was a rugged trash-hauler the U.S. Air Force used to get in and out of tiny, out-of-the-way fields where Hercs wouldn't fit and helos couldn't reach. Any tac airlift pilot and certainly any bush pilot will appreciate the experiences the Spartan pilots went through flying in the biggest uncontrolled area in the western hemisphere.

About the Author:

Michael Bleriot is a military and civilian pilot. He has flown over 4,000 hours in two dozen aircraft, including over a thousand hours in the C-27 Spartan. He published Memories of an Emerald World in 2011 to honor people and places he encountered on one of his more colorful assignments. He followed that up with The Jungle Express in 2012, Wings of Blue in 2013, and Flying Naked in 2015.
