Author: Captain A.L. Eisenhauer, Patricia Eisenhauer & L. Bar Eisenhauer
Fly with Captain Ike through his Navy career. Roll the beautiful 707 over the ocean and then hijack her back to the United States for our government. You will live these adventures with Captain Ike as he wrote about them or in many cases as told by his crew members or family. This unique individual believed in sharing what he had learned (often the hard way) in order to save lives, perhaps yours and mine. Ike was most at home in the air. He was welcomed throughout the world, sometimes with a weapon pointed in his direction. He took it all in stride and lived to tell about it. Flights to Nigeria, Libya, Malta, South America and Switzerland each involved an unforgettable story. He was possibly the last swashbuckler to fly the world and though he denied it often Ike loved to be in the catbird seat on a journey.
Captain “Ike” Eisenhauer was a story teller; his words depict a time when life was either black or white, when the skies were clear and limitless. Patricia, his wife, also an author, entered his life in time to share the fantastic ride, to challenge him, to comfort him and at his request to finish the epic story. Aviation’s unique vocabulary is a mystery to Patricia and so Ike’s son Bar edited the book and added some spice to the stories.
