Recording the legacy of flying the DC-3 in the Rocky Mountains with Frontier Airlines, this historical narrative captures the stories of the pilots who flew from 1946 to 1986 and who had many record-breaking achievements. Anecdotes bring to life the exciting adventures of flying through "tornado alley" without radar, flying into dimly lit airports and those hidden in deep mountain canyons, and of flying in skies heavy with rain clouds and streaked with lightning. With firsthand retellings of how pilots dealt with early navigation methods, these accounts will delight and instruct aviation-history enthusiasts and pilots alike.
