This was my dad's Air Force

da JohnOgden (Utenti WorldCat. Pubblicazioni 2012-11-12) Eccellente Link permanente

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?
