A book all pilots should have. com User, 10 years ago. Gordon Baxter was a word merchant with a "voice" truly his own and a style so clear and orginal that it could never be mistaken for that of another author. Often touching, frequently screamingly funny and always wonderful to read, these were, at least mostly, originally published as columns in Flying Magazine. How do I describe the inital collection of the best of Baxter? I first obtained mine direct from Bax himself and I have a nice note in his own hand. Regardless, if you like Bax Seat over the years, this is one to get, keep, and re-read occaisionally.

Airline bus drivers to whom it’s just a job and military jet jocks who sneer at anything that doesn’t have zillions pounds of thrust won’t appreciate Bax, but to those of us who love flying, Gordon Baxter is a writer with magic words that speak to what we understand.
Something made me think of the Bax Seat column which ran in Flying and I looked him up. My copy of the book came couple of days ago. Can’t remember such enjoyable reading. I started marking good passages and quotes in the book margins, but gave up cuz there’s so many.
The book also has an intro from Stephan Wilkinson—no mean aviation writer himself—and goes into their professional editor/author relationship. Amusing and true for those who have been there.
6 stars of 5.

Baxter wrote the "Bax seat" column in Flying magazine from the early 1970's through the early part of this century. It was my favorite column in the magazine. This a compilation of some of those columns.

Excellent book. Bax is a legend. If you fly or just love Aviation. Gordon Baxter’s books are a must have.

Settle in, pull a chair up to the front of the hangar so you can see the Stearmans and Cubs in the pattern while Bax spins tales of how it used to be, and how it still is at hundreds of little airports dotting the country. Many lived through the transition from barnstormers to jet airliners, but few had the ability to capture it the way Gordon Baxter does. You not only see the planes, you feel the vibration of radial engines, smell the clover that's crushed by wheels touching down on grass strips, and come away with an understanding of a way of life that may not be quite gone, but certainly is a bit harder to find. It's still there. Just ask around to find a grass runway, drive out, wander around, and be prepared to spend some time "visiting." In the conversations around fabric-covered planes you'll hear Bax's clear voice.

A classic book to be cherished.
