George Carter, a professional diver, diving instructor, and retired police officer who once commanded the department’s Underwater Recovery Team, has completed his book “Ride with the Pirates”: a riveting semiautobiographical reflection on a career spent searching for, finding, and recovering downed military aircraft from the Second World War. Carter brings the chapters to life by recreating the fatal flight of each plane and putting the reader in the cockpit for their final descent.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, George Carter’s book is a historically accurate and gripping adventure of search and recovery in a wide variety of far-flung and perilous environments.

From the steaming equatorial jungles of the South Pacific to the frozen wastelands of the high Arctic, often pursued by armed revolutionaries, marauding tribesmen, and the occasional corrupt bureaucrat, a team of highly skilled professionals seeks to find and recover some of aviation’s lost heritage. Learn what it’s like to endure bone-chilling cold nearly two hundred feet beneath a dark North Carolina lake as they struggle to raise a B-25 bomber lost for over fifty years. Experience the fear of crashing the ship onto the rocks in the “fjord of death” hundreds of miles above the Arctic Circle with no hope of rescue. After having been nearly kidnapped by guerillas in the Philippines, problems like running out of air while trying to get untangled sixty feet down become almost mundane. Part autobiographical, part historical, ‘Ride with the Pirates’ is all adventure.
Readers who wish to experience this engrossing work can purchase “Ride with the Pirates” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
