    "Vignettes of a pilot’s life" Captain Mangan’s narrative is an excellent first hand account of a bygone era; when aircraft flew through the sheer will of their captains. Pilots were revered for the magic that they performed out of sight of the uninitiated passengers; who trusted men they had never met with their lives. This book opens the now locked cockpit door and reveals some of the magic that took place under those dim lights and the kerosene soaked smell of the cockpit. From the harrowing account of the loss of an engine on a DC-10 over the Atlantic, to the more mundane discussions of airline management he provides a complete account of the microcosm of an airline pilot’s life. This is a must read for anyone who has every wondered what it’s like to fly big iron. Mark Monturo Professional Airline Pilot
