The years when American aviation came of age are illustrated in The Pink Bomber. It will especially interest veterans of the North African and Italian campaigns during World War II, their families and friends, and students and teachers who hope to describe those critical events with flesh and blood reality. Bob Spelman A pilot's view of training, World War II combat service in the Mediterranean, under British and American command, and peacetime airline service in propeller-driven planes. The years when American aviation came of age are illustrated in The Pink Bomber. It will especially interest veterans of the North African and Italian campaigns during World War II, their families and friends, and students and teachers who hope to describe those critical events with flesh and blood reality. Bob Spelman records events in which he participated or which he witnessed in the 1940s and 1950s. His articles on pilot training demonstrate the need for continuous learning for success in the air. Chapters report some of Bob's 53 missions in the Mediterranean Theater. They describe aerial achievements and ground-based activities. They show continuing training routines, and the controlled terror of men facing mortal danger due to enemy action or friendly errors. The Bomb Group to which the author belonged was part of 9th U.S. Army Air Force. For months he flew under overall British command, attached to the Eighth Army in North Africa. The author describes the experience with great respect for the lessons learned from the Royal Air Force. The author deals with the perennial scourge of "friendly fire," and the more pleasant prospects of finding food, drink and entertainment in North Africa, and in newly allied Italy. He describes men who proved their heroism in peaceful as well as combat situations; he also describes men who somehow came up short in similar situations. The Pink Bomber concludes with sections describing service with American Airlines. These include both personal experiences and yarns picked up from pioneer airline pilots with whom the author flew. The Pink Bomber shows its author's growth from a collegian with a boyhood dream of flying, to an experienced professional military and transport pilot, with an enduring love for the cockpit, its challenges and Books, Biography & Autobiography~~Military, The-Pink-Bomber~~Robert-A-Spelman, 999999999, The Pink Bomber: Cockpit Memories, Robert A.
