Item description for Is That Something The Crew Should Know? by Don Clawson...
Forty years ago in 1962, President Kennedy had one big headache and the world held its breath during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Meantime, the author was flying in huge B-52 bombers across the atlantic. Did the crews know there were thermonuclear devices on board? Did they also know that there was no effective brake on procedures once the coded attack signal was given? Did they heck. They just held the start of World War III in their hands. A fact which gives eerie radiance to the recommendation made by General Orvil Anderson of the Air Force War College, to bomb the soviets "not tomorrow, but tonight..." Read Major Don Clawson's anecdotes - some serious, some hilarious - about life in the US Air Force as a pilot and instructor, and decide which is more complicated - politics or flying?
