Col. Lou Martin, USAF (ret.) obtained his pilot's license at age 17, and for the next 50 years flew aircraft as diverse as the Piper Cub, single-engine jets, and large military and civilian transports. He was an Air Force pilot of 22 years, a Japan Airlines Captain for five, a chartered pilot in Iran for three and an FAA pilot inspector for 19. During his 19,000 hours in the air he experienced many interesting -- and sometimes dangerous -- events that could have ended his exciting flying career. In Close Encounters With the Pilot's Grim Reaper he presents a pilot's true story, in autobiographical format, of close encounters he experienced during sixty years of military and civilian flying, plus encounters, some fatal of aviation colleagues. With 540 pages and more than 80 illustrations. These photos embellish the reader's concept while they accompany Lou as he reminisces, with remarkable clarity, his fascinating life. For those of you who have read his award-winning book, Wings over Persia, you are in for another great read!
