The stories in Wheels Up: Sky Jinks in the Jet Age are the real deal, true antics of a jet age pilot in the high-octane environment of the cockpit. Some will give you pause and make you think, some will knock the wind out of you, and some will make you throw your head back and laugh.
From the hallowed halls of The Citadel to the sometimes dark skies of Vietnam to the pranks and high jinks of a game-faced pilot, Captain Steve Taylor will take you by the seat of your pants and fly you to the moon (metaphorically speaking).
