Yeager

Describing the adventure filled life of probably the best known fighter Ace and test pilot, this book delivers "The Right Stuff"!

" I never knew when I might be taking my last ride. With so many ways to bust my butt flying research aircraft, I knew better than to think that any test flight was routine. Even so, on the morning of October 27, 1947, I was feeling confident in the cockpit of the X-1.

.... I try another engine switch... nothing happens. The ship is dead and I'm dropping like a bomb, loaded with 5 thousand pounds of volatile fuel, certain to blow a giant crater into the desert floor some 20,000 feet below."

So begins the book, and the action never lets up, what's more it's true!
