In 1959, at the age of 24, the author travelled to places to become a flight engineer on board of the Lufthansa Super Constellations, a job the majority of Germans could only dream of. He flew to Rio de Janeiro, New York, to the Middle East and to Africa, the continent, that inspired him most. Whenever possible, he explores the exotic worlds. Later he flew on jets like the Boeing 707 and 747. The enthusiasm for flying started out on a Schulgleiter. His passions like soaring gliders and flying powered aircrafts, later sailing, he carried out during his professional career, also in the clubframe. The cordial friendships that went along with this passions led him to new areas of activity after completing his work as a flight engineer, which he engages in with commitment and never ending interest. However, some dark shadows accompanying his optimistic attitude while writing this down. When writing this book the memories of the two aircraft accidents of the Lufthansa on 20 November 1974 in Nairobi and the Air France on 1 June 2009 in the South Atlantic wake up. Again and again, the author's thoughts go back to the causes which related to his own professional field of activity. Many exciting events from every day flight operation are presented to the readers. In doing so, the author describes complex technical details in an intuitive manner and with unbreakable fascination for the beauty of flying. For a long time, he was a lecturer in flight technology. The readers will experience their next flight in a different way, equipped with a lot of knowledge about what hides behind the cockpit door, but also with the knowledge of an exciting and flight-thrilled life, driven by an immense amount of curiosity.
