A while back, I asked my friends on Facebook to recommend great travel books that I could feature in this weekly column. Phil Derner, my buddy and a co-founder of NYC Aviation, recommends “Headwind” by John J. Nance. He says it’s a great novel. Amazon’s description goes like this:
“In the skies above Europe, a Boeing 737 jets toward an unknown destination. On board is John Harris—a fugitive from justice. Charged by an international accord of ordering the torture of hundreds of innocent people, he is the most wanted man in the world. He is the former President of the United States. The pilot, Captain Craig Dayton, realizes that a silent conspiracy against John Harris is taking shape, and that every moment the plane spends on the ground makes a target for his enemies—who have already condemned him for his crimes. Now, as both sides wage a war of words in the most powerful courts in the world, the only safe haven left is in the air…”
