about

Carl Gamble, a premier airline pilot, has penned a remarkable memoir, a powerful story about his journey from the cotton fields of Madison County, Alabama, to the captain's seat flying jumbo jets between North America and Europe. While in grade school, Gamble was inspired by Air Force jet fighters flying over Madison and his dream to become a pilot was born. Gamble's hard and focused work overcame an inauspicious start studying aviation at Tennessee State University, a necessary stepping stone toward a flying career for African Americans of small means in the 1960s.

Gamble was awarded the Air Force's coveted Distinguished Flying Cross. His quick thinking and superior flying skills enabled him to land his C-47, severely disabled by enemy antiaircraft fire, and save the lives of his crew in Vietnam.

My Blue Yonder tells Gamble's story by taking you to his boyhood home, into the cockpit of his burning airplane, and into his PTSD. You fly with him to rescue men adrift on an ice floe in Lake Superior, refuel combat aircraft at four hundred miles per hour over the Gulf of Tonkin, and negotiate with a hijacker while flying in a holding pattern off the coast of Florida...
