No Visible Horizon: Surviving the World’s Most Dangerous Sport
Joshua Cooper Ramo (au)
In a good year, aerobatics is one of the most beautiful sports imaginable. Pilots pull through impossibly elegant figures, twisting their planes at hundreds of miles an hour. The stress on their bodies reaches 10 times the force of gravity, but this is nothing compared to the strain on their minds & the tension in their souls. In a bad year no sport kills more of its participants. The author introduces us to some of the greatest aerobatic pilots in the world, including Leo Loudenslager & Kirby Chambliss. An elegant & thrilling exploration, not simply of a pilot’s physical battle against gravity, but of his dream of perfection & his quest for faith. "Ramo has the right stuff & so does his book. It's a classic."
