Ghosts of the Air
by Martin Caidin
Just in time for Halloween, this re-issued publication of true-life supernatural accounts in the aviation world will make those who don't believe in ghosts think twice. Well-documented and researched by a veteran flyer and author with an international reputation, this book will give even the most dyed-in-the-wool doubters...well, the creeps. Originally published in 1991, it was republished in 2007 by Barnes & Noble and has found its way back onto their shelves in time for Halloween.
From Barnes & Noble online:
"Ghosts of the Air is the culmination of a lifetime of personal interviews and independent research. In this unforgettable book, Martin Caidin documents mysterious flights of phantom World War II bombers seen by dozens of eyewitnesses; airfields eerily inhabited by airmen killed in action; voices emanating from dead radios; ghost visitations; a Boeing 727 that for ten minutes slipped through a stitch of time. With story after incredible story, the former FAA examiner evokes unforgettable images of supernatural incidents in the air."

Plane and pilot both vanished within seconds. Since he wanted his wings, he never mentioned it to his instructor...
...and many more!
Pick up this book of multiple aerial hauntings...if you dare...
