              April Fool's Day, 1992. Author Gordon R. Page receives a call from a business associate offering him the chance to travel to Russia in hopes of acquiring a rare World War II fighter plane. He's waited for this call for years-and it's not a joke. Packed with action, intrigue, and ...danger, Warbird Recovery delivers Page's gripping true story of his journey to Russia to recover the aircraft and fulfill a lifelong dream. In bitter winter conditions, Page journeys to St. Petersburg, Russia, in an attempt to recover a rare German Bf 109 fighter plane. But everything about traveling in the former Soviet Union only reinforces the vast differences between cultures. Placing a call, buying lunch, and even riding in a taxi-to say nothing of buying an aircraft-prove to be strange and dangerous. Putting his life at risk, Page discovers that he must learn to negotiate and have plenty of cash on hand to ensure both his safety and his return to the United States. Yet nothing can compare to the excitement he experiences upon finding lost aircraft. Unfortunately, chasing a childhood dream just might cost him his life.

              In the 1930s, air travel was considered glamorous and exciting. But in today's world, lines have unfortunately become long, leg room has shrunk to unthinkable sizes, food choices have become less than desirable, and passengers have become unpredictable travelers who often conduct... themselves in ways that would have made their grandmothers shudder in horror. In a candid collection of real-life air travel experiences, seasoned business traveler Gordon Page shares both humorous and cringey stories stories of his challenges traveling the world in seat 29B to appraise aircraft. From passengers who clipped their toenails, blacked out, and stripped naked during an overnight international flight, to a spiritual healer who confidently assisted with an in-flight medical emergency, to the flight attendants who patiently dealt with a variety of incidents and personalities, Page leads us through his diverse, often shocking experiences gathered from a million-plus miles of flying. Throughout his entertaining narrative, Page reminds all of us that attitude is the key to viewing travel as an adventure rather than an ordeal. Gordon ... has captured the pain of travel for business but also demonstrated a clear sense of humor about the process. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view from Seat 29B. -Paul Hinton, pilot and aviation industry professional

              Starting at an early age, Gordon Page was obsessed with anything that had to do with airplanes. Compelled to always look up to see what was flying overhead, he quickly developed the ability to identify anything with wings. Since then, Gordon has spent his life chasing planes. Gor...don chronicles stories from his life as a pilot, consultant, broker, and aircraft appraiser that detail real life experiences and valuable lessons learned. Gordon's anecdotes reveal a variety of circumstances that include white-knuckle moments in the cockpit as he faced electrical failure in the skies over western Nebraska, survived an unforgettable helicopter tour of northern Israel as a passenger, and prepared to crash into a cornfield in a small plane in South Korea with a Top Gun obsessed pilot at the controls. Included are stories about how Gordon helped keep a giant bomber in the sky, assisted a film crew in recording a flight test of the G-II, and helped coordinate the sale of several Me 262s after a one-hour visit to Meacham, Texas, years earlier. Chasing Planes encapsulates the fascinating life journey of a pilot and airplane aficionado after he looked to the skies and found his true calling.
