Major Carl G. Schneider, author of Jet Pioneer: A Fighter Pilot's Memoir ...

Please join us on Saturday, June 8, at 10 a.m. (until noon) for a book talk and book signing by Major General Carl G. Schneider. His new book, JET PIONEER, gives a fascinating look into the remarkable story of a thirty-two year U.S. Air Force career, beginning in 1946 as a newly enlisted airman and his ascent through the ranks to become a two star general, an accomplishment very few men in American military history achieve.

General Schneider’s incredible memoir also includes:

  • Flying an F-86 Sabre for the first time and breaking the sound barrier as his plane reached Mach 1.
  • The fun of scuba diving with his friend Buzz Aldrin, while the two are participating in gunnery training at Wheelus AFB in Libya and watching Sputnik slowly cross the vast and starry night sky.
  • His own story of how a boy’s dream became a reality.
  • In-depth descriptions of firsthand stories re-telling the early development of jet aircraft and the dangerous situations pilots frequently encountered.
WCPL welcomes veterans, veteran groups and civilians.
Please note that General Schneider's presentation will be filmed by WC-TV.
Sponsored by The Special Collections Department at WCPL.
