50 More Tales of Flight
’50 More Tales of Flight’ will transport you to aviation adventures across the globe. From the open-air cockpit of an antique biplane to the beads-of-sweat realism of fighter jet simulators, you will be taken aloft. Aircraft are flown high above vast oceans while others are found decaying in the deepest jungles.
These tales embrace aviation from the ground up – its history, its people and the magic of the wind slipping beneath the wings. There are moments of beauty and trepidation. In this pursuit of aviation, new friends are made and old ones are lost.
In this pilot’s journey from the crib to the cockpit is where you will find, ’50 More Tales of Flight’.
He got me when he told the story of his mother’s ex fiancee. Oh boy. Thanks for such a great collection of stories Owen. I didn’t think you were gonna make it to that tiny island with the dodgy GPS either! Recommend this book to anybody who likes a good yarn — especially a good yarn with a good pilot.
I love the passion and the personal style Owen’s of writing. Whether its on approach in an airliner, or an engine failure in a twin, I feel like I am right beside him experiencing it all as I am reading these stories. This is another beautifully written book with lots of heart and plenty of humour that will have you captivated from start to finish. Highly recommended for everyone.
This book is extremely well written. It is more than just a tale of flight, but of life amd the choices we make. I thoroughly enjoyed 50 Tales of Flight so much that I also bought Solo Flight. If you’re a fan of aviation you will not be disappointed.
Another fantastic set of stories about flying that go beyond the mechanical & transportation aspects of flying to reach into the feelings, experiences and wonder that flight can bring us. Highly recommended and I’m eagerly looking forward to the next one in the series 🙂
Like Owen”s previous “50 Tales” this was an enjoyable read from start to finish ! This telling had just a little more polish but still had you “sitting in his seat” and seeing and feeling exactly what he was. I look forward to reading more from this superb writer”s pen.
I loved it. I confess that I am biased as I love Owne Zupp’s writing as I think he captures the essence of flight. My only regret when I finished it was that there was no more to read. I don’t expect that every reader will be as enthusiastic as me, but I would recommend it to anyone who loves aviation to give it a trial. Who knows, they could become a fan as well.
