Lost in Oscar Hotel: There is Something in the Air

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

In Lost in Oscar Hotel, author Gordon "Joe" Murray and wingman Ron Siwik prove it's not about the destination, but the journey. In Spring 2012 - the 75th anniversary of the venerable Piper J3 Cub - the duo set out in a pair of J3s to venture from their base in Kent, OH to Wright Brothers Airport in Dayton by the most unconventional of aeronautical courses. This 214-page book chronicles the adventures the duo experienced as they spent 9 days zig-zagging across Ohio to land at all 88 of the state's counties before finally setting down in Dayton. Join the adventurous aviators as they spend 36 hours and 6 minutes covering an 1,809-nm route over an area of roughly 41,860 square miles while soaring along a mere 1,000 feet above the surface. Meet the people they encountered along the way and hear how 50,000+ fans followed the aerial odyssey of this pair of vintage airplanes. A fascinating, heart-warming read that's a true testament to the strong human bond made possible through aviation.
