|From Hayseed to Jet Pilot and Beyond was written after prompting from the authors children, relatives, and friends to write a book about his colorful life experiences. Initial tales recount life on a small Iowa farm in the 30s. Johnny relates how his life was forever changed by World War II with his aspirations of becoming a pilot fulfilled by entering the Army Air Corps Aviation Cadet program. After the War, he remained in the Air Force as a military pilot, flying over 20 types of planes. With humorous insight he recounts his adventures in many countries and describes his part in making history in the eras of World War II, the Berlin Airlift, NATO, and the Cold War.After retirement from the Air Force, Johnny began a new career as an economic development executive with Northern Natural Gas Company in Omaha. In this position, he called on some of the most senior executives of companies throughout the U.S., promoting the northern plains as a place to do business.Woven in his biography are tales of his many travels, including fascinating, first-hand experiences that occurred while traveling in Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Russia and elsewhere. *Author: Clark, Johnny *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 316 *Publication Date: 2005/08/24 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.88 inches|
