BOOKs: Title: The Triumph of Instrument Flight: A Retrospective in a Century of U.S. Aviation by DAILEY, CAPTAIN Franklyn E. Retired firstname.lastname@example.org. I recently published The Triumph of Instrument Flight: A Retrospective in a Century of U.S. Aviation. Squadrons mentioned include: VP-41 (P2Y-2s then PBYs), VPB-120, VPP-1, and failing to make the index through oversight, VP-62 a PBY squadron in NAS Adak, Alaska. FAW-4 and FAW-7 receive coverage. The book emphasizes the northern hemisphere, especially the North Atlantic and North Pacific. I never had tropical duty though I took a reserve P2V-5F squadron from NAS Los Alamitos, California to NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii for 2-weeks acdutra, but that is not in book, no inst.
