"Midair is a true account of one of the most remarkable tales of survival in the history of aviation -- a midair collision at 30,000 feet by two bomb-laden B-52s over a category 5 super typhoon above the South China Sea during the outset of the Vietnam War -- and the subsequent story of what happened to the surviving pilot when he bailed out in the middle of the typhoon. Interwoven through pilot Maj. Don Harten's daramtic story of his million-to-one struggle against near-certain death is a previously unexamined look at how America had developed an aerial battle plan that would likely have ended the Vietnam conflict in under an month during the late winter of 1965"--Provided by publisher.
