The answer varies depending on who you talk to, but  most American travelers find the Vietnamese polite, friendly, and definitely curious about the advantages of living in a democratic, capitalistic society.  Is this a new trend? Not really.  In Mick Greene’s new book “The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot”,  he  describes a visit he made to Vietnam ten years ago  with five fellow “Yankee Air Pirates” —a term the Vietnamese used to describe those who wreaked  havoc from the sky during the Vietnam War (they call it “the American War” by the way, and they are extremely proud that they won it.)

The Vietnam War is part of American history like it or not. Reading “The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot” by Mick Greene is a good way to learn about it before it fades away in the rear view window of our society.  How to buy it? It’s simple. Buy it on Amazon or Kindle  or at his web site www.oldboldbio.com.

Two aircraft enter a test range, one close behind the other. The lead aircraft is carrying a still unproven weapon. The pilot’s mission is to drop this weapon at air speeds pushing the structural limits of his aircraft.  The chase pilot is there to watch the drop and report what he sees. But there is a catch.  Each pilot is flying a different type of aircraft, each with its own set of unpredictable and sometimes unforgiving  aerodynamic instabilities, especially at extremely high airspeeds.  What happens if one or both aircraft becomes unstable while in close proximity of each other? To find out, read Chapter 9 of Mick’s new book The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot.  You can buy it here at Amazon or Kindle.
