Angels Three Six: Confessions of a Cold War Fighter Pilot
Date: September 2019
Duration: 5 hours 26 minutes
Strap into a mortar-fired parachute, a rocket powered ejection seat and fly with Col Chuck Lehman in the fastest single engine jet fighter ever built, the F-106 Dart. Feel the exhilaration of hurtling through the blue at a mile every 2.35 seconds, the "G" forces and the satisfaction of keeping the bad guys out of our airspace. You'll laugh at some of these stories, sweat out a few and ask, "How could he have been so stupid?" in others. These confessions bare it all. Sense what it was like to live and work as a fighter pilot in an environment of huge egos, unbridled confidence and an eagerness to push it to the edge-and sometimes over it. As Chuck says, "Just keep the pointy end forward." Also get acquainted with the F-102, F-86, Harrier, T-33 too, and even the ubiquitous Gooney Bird.
