With co-author Kathy Nelson, Zullo's latest entrant captures some of flying's best moments, from the Northwest captain who had pizza delivered to a plane stuck on the tarmac to the Delta flight engineer who fell out the back exit of a taxiing jet. "Hey, thanks for waiting for me!" he told the pilot who slowed to pick him up. "No problem," answered the captain. "I like you."From start to finish, Air Schtick will keep readers laughing at some of aviation's most amazing antics.
