Thoughts:
The Last Pilot by Benjamin Johncock is an interesting story which focuses on the relationships and expectations of the pilots working in the early days space program. The characters, both men and women, are complex and multi-dimensional.

The author does an excellent job weaving in fictional characters with historical figures and events. The backdrop of the early X-plane test flights and early space program provides an interesting, timely, twists in the stories and relationships.

The author captured the spirit of the time and the feeling of having a complex personal life along with a complex professional life. If you are a fan of the early space program, or just that of the human condition, this book is for you.

Synopsis:
