To Fly And Flight is about flying, plain and simple: the joys and dangers and the very special skills it demands. Touching, thoughtful, and dead honest, it is the story of a boy who grew up living his dream. Flying with Chuck Yeager in the 357th squadron, Anderson became a triple ace in the European Theater of World War II, an extraordinary accomplishment. Following World War II, Anderson became a test pilot and later commanded jut fighter squadrons in South Korea and Okinawa. Then, in 1970, at an age when most pilots have long-since retired, he was a wing commander, flying combat strikes over Vietnam.
