Pilots to Presidents examines the story of BC's aviation leaders and pioneers, from 1930-1960, recording the excitement of a changing technology, the triumphs and the failures, revealing a cast of gifted, brave, sometimes arrogant and cantankerous individuals. Legends grew around flights to the Headless Valley, the rescue of bomber crews in the "Million Dollar Valley" and other exploits. This book reveals the history and the real people as more intriguing and understandable than the improbable myths.
