During the 2020 COVID lockdown, Bob was persuaded by his daughter to write a book about his flying experiences as a pilot in the U.S. Air Force and with the Boeing Company. It was intended as a piece of memorabilia for his kids and grandkids, but it soon grew into a major production.
Ape Without a Boarding Pass chronicles true stories which he experienced during his 40-year flying career. The book describes such facets as the “stark terror” concept and interacting with different worldwide cultures and is presented with some humor, as well as a bit of drama.
Bob has lived in Sun Lakes with his wife Shirley for over 11 years. The book is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble in eBook, paperback, or hardcover formats. Please visit his website www.aretiredpilotsquill.com.
