Summary: "Anybody who has ever flown, or served in an air force, will find that Clyde Edgerton's Solo brings back many memories, some of them pleasant, others terrifying.

Inhaltsangabe: When Clyde Edgerton was four years old, his mother took him to the local airport to see the planes. For Edgerton, it was love at first sight. Eighteen years later, she would take him to the same airport to catch a flight to Texas for Air Force pilot training. In Solo, Edgerton tells the story of his lifelong love affair with flying, from his childlike wonder to his job as a fighter pilot flying reconnaissance over the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Now, nearly thirty-five years after the war in Vietnam, he looks back at his youthful passion for flying, at the joy he took in mastering it, at the exhilaration?and lingering anguish?of combat flying. It is a story told with empathy and humor?and with searing honesty that will resonate with every pilot who remembers the first takeoff, the first landing, the first solo. For the nonpilots who always choose the window seat, it?s a thrilling story to live vicariously.
