Gremlins are everywhere. When things go wrong, you can bet one is somewhere nearby, maybe even on your shoulder. Whispering in your ear to make you doubt yourself or make a mistake, cackling to himself all the while. Jon Boyd, a twenty-four year military and civilian aviator, recounts some of his most memorable stories where the outcome of the mission or even his survival was in doubt. The worst-case scenario is always only a few feet or milliseconds away: a smoking hole or a spinning ruin of aluminum and aircraft parts.
Author Jon Boyd’s matter-of-fact story telling, typical of those who live on the edge most of their lives puts you in the cockpit with him and the gremlin; feeling the g’s, the exhilaration and the cold sweat caused by the struggle to complete the mission and get back safely to terra firma.
