There I Wuz! Volume IV: Adventures From 3 Decades in the Sky (Volume 4) Reviews
I am not a pilot, but that is irrelevant for enjoying this book & series. Anyone with a love for aviation and/or the art of flying will find stories in these volumes to entertain and make you think. For the typical passenger, stories like these help to give us a peek behind the locked door that exists between us and the men/women who wear those 3 or 4 stripes on their uniform shoulders. By the way, the story about losing an engine during a takeoff from the high altitude Mexico City airport, surrounded by mountains, with a plane loaded full of passengers and fuel, is... amazing.
All Cap'n Aux books are awesome and each with a unique flavor. But this volume with the people, might be my favorite. What's better than reading the stories of real people of aviation. And who doesn't want to know the story behind the flight attendant who decides to end his career with a couple beers and a slide to freedom? So many stories and all equally great! I also have an article in this volume, with an extremely important issue of terrorism of another kind. This will be one of those books that you'll buy many of, and gift them to your friends!
Cap'n Aux has done it again with stories that will uplift, thrill,educate and inform you. Some great tales covering a wide spectrum in aviation. A great read.
I read this book before it was published as a proofreader and one of the featured articles. I so enjoyed reading all the other stories from the other authors and featured people. Every story was so fun and enjoyable to read. I kept flipping through the pages as I read every word. Cap'n Aux has put together a great selection of stories that totally kept my interest...it's always fun and inspirational to read others aviation interest, challenges and journey in this industry and profession. Such a delight...thanks Eric! Keep up the great work and keep writing about yours and others aeronautical adventures whether by book or blog! Fly safe buddy.
Eric Auxier rocks it again with engaging storytelling and a knack for selecting compelling contributors. From rousing adventure to thoughtful introspection, this book has something for everyone. A definite must-read! (And if you haven't read the other books in the series - check them out! You'll love them too.)
