Article: Vertical Rewind: Coast-to-Coast… in THAT?

I’ve always been a sucker for stories that put you right there in the cockpit. Books like Chickenhawk by Robert Mason and Too The Limit by Tom A. Johnson are good examples of this, and gave us great insight into the Vietnam War from a pilot’s perspective. Now Vertical Magazines historical Rewind series offer great views into the history of rotary flight. One that captivated me in particular was the non-stop US coast-to-coast flight by Bob Ferry in an OH-6A back in 1966. This story is written by Don Porter and puts you right there next to Bob on this record-breaking flight, well worth a read! And if you have any other books or stories like this you would like to recommend, please leave a comment.
