Those of us of a certain age grew up with the Sky King television show. The old black and white TV shows inspired a lot of aviation careers, from pilots and flight instructors to airline pilots to astronauts.
I had the personal pleasure of meeting and getting to know Kirby Grant and his wife after they retired to Central Florida  in 1971.
Shortly after his heart surgery in 1978, Kirby Grant spoke to me about the book he was “writing”, taking the title “Out of the Blue” from the iconic opening of the television show. It was only much later after Kirby's passing in 1986 that I learned from his wife, Carolyn Grant, that the “book” had existed only in Kirby's mind and good intentions.
This book is the fulfillment of a promise made to Carolyn Grant.
