Captain Andrew J. Angelo, a distinguished naval flight officer during the Vietnam conflict, a retired international airline captain of United Airlines, as well as an aviation consultant in a prestigious DC-based firm, has completed his new book “Wings of my Father”: a compelling narrative detailing his near-tragic encounter on November 15, 1971, during his flight aboard a twin-engine aircraft in route from New Jersey to Massachusetts.

Author Angelo recounts the struggles of pilots during this time due to the lacking technology, especially in communication and navigation:

“‘TEB, did you copy 6408Y’s mayday?’

A weak garbled response came over the speaker.

‘Roger 6408Y…Copy mayday…. Maintain 3,000 feet…Fly heading 270 for approach to ILS 06…Weather at TEB…Ceiling 100 variable to 200 overcast…Visibility half mile variable to one-fourth mile…fog…rain…wind now 090 degrees at 10 knots gusting to 15…altimeter 29.89 inches…state your intentions.’
State my intentions!

I just declared a mayday! What did he think my intentions were, fly to Miami?

‘TEB, my intentions are to get down in one piece!’”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Andrew Angelo’s exhilarating anecdote is a powerful reflection of a pilot’s passion and dedication to his chosen work. “Wings of my Father” lets the readers feel the pilot’s extreme danger and near suicide, in attempts to save his aircraft and its passengers.

Readers who wish to experience this rousing work can purchase“Wings of my Father” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo, or Barnes and Noble.
