Synopsis: Pioneer test pilot Johnston, with the help of writer Barton, recounts his illustrious career during the 1930s through the 1970s, an era when the work of designers and engineers was verified not by computer, but by the skill and daring of test pilots. Includes many photos. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

Review: "There seem to be two Tex Johnstons: the one who became legendary in 1955 for performing two barrel rolls with the Boeing 707 prototype . . . and the man who brought to flight testing a far more meticulous approach than had ever been used before. . . . Johnston is of the barnstorming generation . . . [and] in his memoir's best moments you can smell the oil on the grass."--Air & Space

"Fascinating reading."--Aerospace
