Sinopse

CONTRAILS Memoirs of A Cold Warrior Jack Jaacks writes a moving personal account of a Midwestern farm boy who dreamed of becoming a military officer and an Air Force Pilot. During the Cold War of the 1950's an attack against the United States by Russian bombers carrying nuclear bombs was believed to be a certainty. America built an Air Defense system to protect itself. Nearly 2000 fighter-interceptor aircraft and 5,000 pilots guarded the skies above America Like fighter pilots of generations before them, the U.S. Air Defense Command pilots flew into hostile skies and lived out the dreams of their youth. And, like their forefathers, many died in keeping America free. No Soviet bomber ever penetrated the U. S. Air Defenses. Jaacks flew the first jet Fighter-Interceptors, the Sabers, Starfires, Scorpions and Delta Daggers in Alaska, the continental U.S., Canada, and in Europe with the Royal Netherlands Air Force. Contrails describes the intensity of a life of an interceptor pilot and how Jaacks became a member of the elite cops of aviators that was the first line of defense against a Soviet nuclear attack against America.
