Manufacturer Description

Richard Kirkland is legendary for his P-38 Lightning missions in the South Pacific theater during WWII. After the war, he realized the potential of Igor Sikorsky's brand-new flying printer, and he traded in his fighter-pilot wings for rotors. The stressful chopper missions he has actually flown are the things of legend: scrambling to evacuate president Harry Truman after an unimaginable "code red one" alert comes by his red phone; bantering with the real "Hawkeye" at a MASH system before flying into North Korea to rescue wounded soldiers. Similarly fascinating are his accounts of a medevac pilot in Vietnam who lands a 10 load CH-46 "Frog" in the jungle at night, with no lights, under fire, with only a soldier's cigarette lighter for reference; and an aerial tour pilot who routinely pulls individuals from the water above, listed below, and right before Niagara Falls.
