- "Feet Wet (aviator talk for reaching the safety of water) is a chronicle of adventure, heroism, courage, and humor, with some of the most exciting passages ever written on flying. From his magical first flight – the sheer exstasy of being airborne, to the heart-pounding excitement of his first night “trap,” the terror of ejecting from a test plane spinning out of control, to dodging SAMs and jousting with MiGs over Hanoi – Gillcrist takes the reader into his world and vividly conveys what all pilots live for – the tremendous “high” of all-out flying."
