Eyup Ned,

I have just received (belatedly as it came from the USA) a book called Kiss the Sky - Helicopter Tales, by Jan Hornung (a lady and Huey pilot).

The back page says it's humorous - the KISS refers to Keep It Simple although it insists her first instructor used it with only one 's' as he said one wouldn't be in the helo if one was stupid!

She also wrote:
Angels in Vietnam; Women Who Served
This is the Truth As Far As I Know; I Could Be Wrong
Spinning Tails

I'll read it (152 pp plus Index, inc Glossary of Terms) and do a brief summary. Nice writing style so far and I'm only on the 4th page of Chapter 1.

(Quote: Kiss The Sky is a rib-tickling, rolling in the aisles hilariously funny book of short stories about flying helicopters in the Army.
Whether you fly fixed-wing or rotary-wing, or you know someone's second cousin twice removed who flies kites, this collection of short stories will amuse pilots and pilot wannabes of all ages.)

There is a film (1998) with Wiliam Petersen in it (and Terence Stamp) but it is not a film of this book!
