This was my dad's Air Force

de JohnOgden (Utilisateur de WorldCat. Publication 2012-11-12) Excellent Permalien

This book resonated with me as personal family history -- inventing air to air refueling, flying RB 45's, B 47's near and over the Soviet Union. Grateful to Samuel for telling their tales.  How many times did I hear the klaxton sound while we ate dinner in an officers' club?
