If all you budding aviators out there are looking for some good aviation material to read, try to find a copy of Ernest K Gann's book "Fate is the Hunter".

It's probably the best flying book anyone has ever written.

Here here Reddog, a fantastic read. It's amazing any of those guys lived to tell the stories.

Too true.

I particularily liked the part where Gann unknowingly got the power, weight and airspeed all exactly right to prevent the tail from "unporting" and putting the airplane out of control.
