277 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0771040474 B&w cartoons. "From the author of 'Boys, Bombs, and Brussels Sprouts' and 'The Tumbling Mirth: Remembering the Air Force' comes yet another uproarious ascent into high-altit ude insanity. And this time, in the interest of 'equal flights', (the author) frequently features the delightful anecdotes sent to him by WDs. As enthusiastic and proud as any member of the air force, the first-ever members of the Women's D i v i s i o n led a life that was often tough, but always intriguing. (This book) contains dozens of hilarious stories from WDs who recall the days when uniforms seemed to come in just a single size - but women had to be brave in more ways than on e. Th er e is a wealth of other incident here as well. Confessions of blunders (or hair-breadth escapes) in the air, details of disastrous parades, and stories of social occasions that were sometimes bungled - but always enjoyed. Poems, prangs, an d pr act ic al jok es are all part of this light-hearted look at the air force from pre-RCAF days on." Small area of slight color fading on free front end paper, light wear at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wear at top/b otto m of s pine an d f lap- folds, a few tiny scuff marks, tiny dint on rear hinge, creases at bottom of rear panel. Very Good/Very Good
