North Star Over My Shoulder; A Flying Life. Bob Buck.
New York: Simon & Schuster, 2002. First Printing. Hardcover. 446, [2] pages. Illustrations. Index. Bob Buck was for a time the youngest licensed pilot in the United States and in 1930, at age 16, he broke the junior transcontinental speed record in a Pitcairn Mailwing. Because the age requirement for licensing was soon raised to 17, his record stands to this day. Bob went on to a career at TWA, flying as Captain in everything from the DC-2 to the 747. Bob became chief pilot of TWA in 1945, accepted delivery of the airline’s first Constellation, and flew the first TWA revenue flight in a 747. His book “Weather Flying” remains a best seller on that subject and his memoir “North Star over My Shoulder” was published in 2005. He was a steady contributor to Air Facts and to The Reader’s Digest. He died in 2007 at the age of 93.
