This is an autographed copy that has only one flaw -- a very tiny tear and small crease on the back cover, along the bottom edge. Otherwise, the book looks new. Clean, unmarked pages; firm binding. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Leonard Porter was hired by Trans World Airlines as a contract captain and was assigned to Saudi Arabian Airlines to indoctrinate young Saudi pilots in airline flying. He and his wife lived in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Going through customs at the Saudi airport in those years was an adventure and set the tone for their entire visit. Leonard's flying within the borders of Saudi Arabia was fraught with danger on every flight. There were no radio aids within the Kingdom except for Jeddah, Riyadh, and Dhahran. Desert sandstorms were frequent surprises. This story relates to many very dangerous flights and situations, and their outcomes will amaze and surprise you.
