Product Description

Product Description

This is a true accounting of one of my flying adventures over New England(US).

All seemed right until all seemed wrong... Flying at night, over water, in clouds with heavy rain, is not a good time to lose engine power.

Thankfully, I had Bob along.

More About the Author

Christopher David Petersen (1963 - 20??). Born and raised in Connecticut, USA. As a child, I was always daring and reckless. Never one to let common sense stand in the way of a great adventure, my bold feats of stupidity were legendary... Huckleberry Finn would have been proud.

"Surprisingly", that same spirit carried over into adulthood, as I sought out entertainment that included: scuba diving; ski Mountaineering; mountain biking; Rock, Ice and Mountain climbing; flying planes; golf, motorcycles, the stock market and of course, experimentation with various alcoholic refreshments.

Later in life, writing became an extension of my deep desire to experience "new and exciting worlds". I have written several books, but none have been published through any formal channels... I've heard the process is long, painful and laborious, the thought of which sickens me. My foray into e-publishing came after a friend suggested my works could fetch dollars instead of dust inside my sock drawer... a righteous observation. My recent publications are the result of this advice. Further adventure/suspense novels are soon to be released.

An engineer by trade, I have worked all over the U.S. and usually write in my spare time... that is when I'm not enjoying a bottle of Scotch and a quality cigar. I am a naturally long-winded individual, so writing is what happens when I can't get anyone to listen to me anymore...

I love all kinds of genres but gravitate more towards suspense. There is nothing like the build up to a great climax... What a rush!

This is a light and humorous short story with some funny moments, complete with a particularly apt ending. Short and sweet, but well-written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wanna laugh while someone's on their way to die??? LOLOLOL 6 Mar 2013

This was a fun way to be out of your mind with fright!!! Christopher Peterson's short story is written in a way that makes you feel like you're sitting there in a plane, listening to a, "This is a true story that happened to me once..." before you take off as HIM as your pilot and you're looking around hoping and praying aint nobody named Bob on board!:-/ LOLOLOLOL SCARY!!!

'Effectively crashing' is a calm, but horrifying thought :-/ And funny as heck!!!

I never thought I'd laugh while someone told me a story about plummeting to their death, but this crash with frowning plane parts was a great laugh and lots of fun to read!!!

Yea, Bob's gotta problem!!! LOLOLOLOLOL
