Here is something for everyone — a concise history of the pioneering airline, a rich potpourri of Pan Am memorabilia, and, best of all, a nostalgic journey back to an age when the mighty Pan American ruled the skies.”

By Harrison Jones
In Shadow Flight, Harrison Jones has spun an aviation tale of kidnapping, drug running, and intrigue. The story opens with flight instructor, Kyle Bennett, teaching slow flight and stalls to one of his students, Brooke Roberts, the wife of a surgeon. Brooke’s husband, also a pilot, gave his wife flying lessons as a birthday gift.
Ultimately, that gift could cost both Brooke and her instructor their lives. Fast paced and riveting, this is a flying story that winds its way through almost every facet of a flyer’s career, from flight instructing to charter work to airline flying. Jones’ background as an international captain for a major airline gives him the unique insight required to tell this account of crime and terrorism.
For those interested in flying as a career, this great read is educational in airline operations while the author spins a wonderful yarn. Shadow Flight will not disappoint. Once you begin reading, you will not want to put Shadow Flight down until you are finished.
