    Did he fly the DC-3's, C123's etc...that they have in the transportation museum? My dad flew the same birds in the late 70's and might know the author.

    Default searching

    I don`t think he piloted DC 3`s or other big aircraft. he had I think a Piper club, and liked to hunt and fish. before he came to Alaska he was a cop somewhere . I am not the best on computers but I did search for his book and got nowhere. thank`s for your help.
