About this product
- DescriptionPioneer Alaskan aviator Jack Jefford tells of rescues, crackups, and wild adventures that come in a lifetime of flying in Alaska.
- Author BiographyJack Jefford (1910-1979) was a natural storyteller and a pioneering giant of Alaskan aviation history. He was a pilot's pilot, who flew so well he figured in scores of dramatic rescue flights. He also helped develop the aerial trailways that are flown today by commercial jets.At the urging of his daughter Carmen, he began recording his stories while sitting in his favorite chair with a glass of whiskey nearby. Over five years, he made 18 tapes, which his daughter and her husband Mark transcribed and edited with the help of aviation journalist Cliff Cernick.The result is a collection of fascinating aviation stories ever to come out of Alaska. From Jack's barnstorming days in Nebraska to his role as FAA Chief Pilot in Alaska, he was one of the best bush pilots who became a legend in his own time.
