Up, Up and Astray: Memoir of an Airline Bachelor During the Golden Age of Air Travel

English | 2017 | ISBN: 099902843X | 460 Pages | EPUB | 0.51 MB

Jim, an only child, has always been a restless soul. At the age of six his dad died unexpectedly. He was left in the care of a stern Catholic mother and grandmother at home, and strict nuns at school. His curious, rambunctious nature only seemed to attract criticism. By the time Jim graduated, he had had enough of female authority. Short stints in the Marines and Cincinnati Police only confirmed his yearning for adventure. Fate intervened when a broken-down car turned into a career with TWA. How could Jim be expected to settle down when his feet never touched the ground? Women, whiskey, and a good tail wind were all he needed to be happy-or so he thought. It was 1964, and being a bachelor in the airline industry provided unlimited freedom. But, was being 37,000 feet above his problems a price to high to pay? Follow Jim on his adventures during the golden age of air travel as he navigates life, work, and love at 550mph.
