Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds
Review by Roger Hixon
I have just read the book, Fighter Pilot. It's the story of American pilot Robin
Olds. A very enjoyable story of a very interesting man, who was involved in many
aspects of aviation, from front line fighter/bomber pilot, to working in the Pentagon.
He fought in WW2 and Vietnam, with distinction.
Anyone wanting to read this book, please contact me to borrow it.
Part 3 of 4. Arthur flies across Scotland, making for the coastline of Argyll and
Bute. Along the way, he gets a lesson in the challenges of flying over the Highlands,
boards a seaplane for a trip to Loch Lomond, visits one of the world's most celebrated
tiny airfields, and goes in search of the wreckage of aircraft from the Second World
War in Oban.
