These stories weren't all that I expected, but despite that I still enjoyed them. The humor was suitably dark, given the subject matter, and a couple of the stories had a morbid twist at the end that wouldn't be amiss in a Rod Serling script. I don't know if Redman (1896-1961) was a pilot himself, but he did have a sad end - committing suicide in a depression over the current state of the world.

Out of the 10 stories, there were 5 I liked most:
