Lord Jubjub: Very good book. It spans from Gann's training as a commercial pilot (he was a biplane barnstormer) in the '30s to his retirement in the late '50s.If I'm not mistaken, the crash that motivates this movie was based on a design/maintenance defect in the tail of the DC-4. Gann's plane should have gone down in a death spiral but for his impatience that made him fly the plane in just the right conditions to avoid that fate (hence the name of the book). This story is the last chapter.The plot of the movie appears nowhere in the book.
