Praise

“There seem to be two Tex Johnstons: the one who became legendary in 1955 for performing two barrel rolls with the Boeing 707 prototype . . . and the man who brought to flight testing a far more meticulous approach than had ever been used before. . . . Johnston is of the barnstorming generation . . . [and] in his memoir’s best moments you can smell the oil on the grass.”—Air & Space

“Fascinating reading.”—Aerospace
