A collection of war stories closely based on the authors experiences flying scout/observation helicopters in Vietnam. Story telling was a daily evening occurrence for the solo scout pilots. These stories, called TINS, an irreverent pilot acronym for this is no shit, allowed the solo pilots to learn from each others experiences and mistakes. The TINS within this collection reveal the brotherhood that developed between pilots and their crew chiefs in combat. The solo pilots relied on their courage, swapping stories and a bit of luck to survive. AUTHOR: The author flew scout helicopters during the Vietnam War. He is now a petroleum geologist working in the oil and gas industry. 45 colour illustrations
