This book tells the story of Johnny Sadiq's career from his introduction to flying jet aircraft (the Boeing 707) until his retirement when he was an instructor on the Boeing 747. This story, filled with anecdotes and interesting flying adventures as well as behind the scenes goings on in airline flight training and management, covers more than thirty years. The author relates his stories with humour and sensitivity in his characteristic engaging way, telling it 'like it was', warts and all. This was no ordinary career - Sadiq's baptism to airline flying was on the Northern Mountains, among the most dangerous routes in the world. Later he flew in East Pakistan through the most appalling weather conditions. These flights were flown on the venerable DC-3, Dakota aeroplane, and the Fokker F-27. Subsequently, after flying the Super-Constellation as co-pilot for nearly a year, Sadiq qualified for command on the DC-3 and later the F-27.

An engine fire while commanding a Boeing 707 flying out of Muscat in the UAE, followed by an approach with two of four engines not working, a near collision of wide bodied jets at New York, and a drama on board a Jumbo Jet out of Tokyo with a venomous snake loose in the cabin, are just a few of the incidents covered in this exciting saga.
