Memoir of WWII B-25 pilot Jay Moore, member of the 345th Bomb Group, known as the Air Apaches. The book chronicles the first twenty-four years of his life (1921-45) from growing up on a farm in Biggsville, Illinois, through the deprivations of the 1930's Depression, to his combat duty in the South Pacific. A True Flyer combines Moore's oral history, photos, and excerpts from his diary and love letters into a funny, colorful, sometimes brash narrative. Enjoy the military aviation history of WWII flyers: from his solo in the Boeing PT-17 "Stearman" biplane, advanced training in the T-6 "Texan," and North American B-25 "Mitchell" bomber on bases in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina. This second edition contains new photographs and a memorial to the author.
