I would enjoy reading your book and plan to look for it. There was just something special about the 1950's.

I have read the book. And I have loved it. The pictures are to be declared as rich and brings back my own days of flying. The book made me choke up with memories as they flew by. Lot to think about as the words flew by on the interesting pages.
