Product description...


This collection of near-death stories by private pilots, fighter pilots, airline pilots, bush pilots, air traffic controllers, and combat crews shines a spotlight on the bravery and ingenuity of men and women in aviation who stood up to the Grim Reaper when he came a'knocking at death's door. You'll be transported right into the middle of these forthright accounts, some deadly serious, some amusing, but always true.
