The Last Pilot by Benjamin Johncock

The Last Pilot

Benjamin Johncock

A slice of American aviation history is served up with a huge dose of sadness. Jim Harrison is among an elite group of US pilots, all eager to become America’s first astronauts. While his professional life is on the up, a tragic event in his personal life sends him to a place much darker than deep space. Tissues are recommended for this beautifully told tear-jerker.
