Heart of the storm

Recommended Posts

This is the best helicopter related book I have read.

A rescue in the storm from "A perfect storm".  From the phillipines to Iraq and many places inbetween...    Arial refueling with a 400ft ceiling with 60' waves below...  

 

Flying the old HH-3's and having to milk the collective in the underpowered pigs...  

 

Basically an awesome book which clearly shows it is'nt glamorous, it is'nt safe but when you can hang it up after 3 decades and know you saved 293 lives it is worth it.

Thanks, I just added this to my Amazon shopping cart.

 

I have read a lot of aviation autobios, and my favorite so far (w.r.t. helicopters) is "Low Level ####" by Hugh Mills, who flew OH-6s in Vietnam. Highly recommended.
