ò Great Flying Stories ß Download by ò Frederick Forsyth I think I was a pilot in a previous life I had to read this book. A simple collection of short stories, some tedious, some enjoyable, all dealing with flight It s a fun read if you find it in a collection somewhere, but nothing too special. The biggest problem I had is that it would go from a story that had me laughing and enjoying its ridiculousness, right into a story that tried to be supremely serious If you re goinf to read it, only read one at a time, then put it down for a bit.
