Synopsis

Synopsis

One of America's most daring and accomplished test pilots, Tex Johnston flew the first US jet airplanes and, in a career spanning the 1930s through the 1970s, helped create the jet age at such pioneering aersospace companies as Bell Aircraft and Boeing.
Praise

Praise

“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
