A Pilot’s Life: Hump Pilot and Crop Duster
by Kenneth Babcock
The primary force to write this book was to reveal how it felt to be an airman living and flying in China during WW II, flying in some of the most dangerous conditions imaginable -- Flying the Hump across the Himalayan Mountains in China, Burma and India. This story is told from memories of personal observations by the author, Ken Babcock. The book also recounts the author’s 30 years of flying as a Crop Duster, as well as his observations of how it was to grow up in the ’20s and ’30s in a small west Texas town.
