Imagine what it would be like to talk and fly with the men who flew the airplanes of World War II. What was in their minds as they made their first solos? And what was air combat like? Flying Through Time is the closest many of us will come to understanding what it was like to be a WWII aviator.Tens of thousands of AmericaOCOs pilots during World War II trained in the Boeing Stearman biplane. For most, it was their first airplane in a series of larger, faster, and more dangerous aircraft that they used to fight the war. The pilots would never forget their first flights in a Stearman and the adventures that followed. Jim Doyle, owner of a restored 1941 Stearman, retraced the wartime journeys of his plane, crossing the country twice; flying over California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas; and touching down at each of the eight bases at which it served. Flying Through Time is the story of DoyleOCOs challenging flight and of the uncertainties of piloting a sixty-year-old biplane almost 8,000 miles. His experiences meeting, talking, and flying with the men who flew the legendary Stearman paint a vivid picture of the intense, emotion-filled days of World War II. The pilotsOCO recollections, refreshed for many when they took the controls of DoyleOCOs plane, are woven throughout the narrative of his trip. These anecdotes, and new information from an archive discovered during the flight, tell of fears, courage, humor, and the sheer adventure of the events that owned the veteransOCO youth. This is seat-of-the-pants flying at its most thrilling, recalling a time when ordinary young Americans were called upon to be heroes."

The legendary Boeing Stearman biplane was the primary trainer aircraft for tens of thousands of America's pilots during World War II. For most of them, the Stearman was the first airplane they flew in the series of increasingly larger, faster, and more dangerous planes with which they fought the war. Like many firsts, these flights in the Stearman and the adventures that followed proved to be unforgettable. Flying through Time is the story of these experiences, told within the framework of the author's own challenging flight retracing the wartime journeys of his plane - a restored 1941 Stearman. Twice crossing the country and touching down on each of the eight bases at which it served, Doyle recounts the uncertainties of piloting a sixty-year-old biplane almost 8,000 miles, as well as his experiences in meeting, talking to, and flying with the men who piloted a Stearman and went on to fight the war.
