This is a story how I got into aviation as a pilot, and the direction my career path took. I flew cargo from the 1980's to the present time. From older planes and pilots that are no longer around, to the more modern cargo jets up to today's Boeing 747 jumbo jet.

Great read

As a retired airline Captain I enjoy reading about the piston era, DC3,4,6,7 along with the C46 and Constellations.

Well written easy read with entertaining stories mixed in. Not much on the technical side, just enough to inform the reader. Very interesting time in aviation history though.
