A friend writes: Marty, I would like to get a copy of the R.T. Jones work on aerodynamics. As you might recall, I had the honor of meeting Mr. Jones at a small house party you had back in the early 1980s. I’ve had the chance to meet a number of aviation greats over the years, and talking with Mr. Jones is one of the best.
I’m almost finished reading the book “My Life.” It’s right up there with the other great aviation great’s tales I’ve read by Adolph Galland, Chuck Yeager, and Bob Hoover. A great read! My best wishes. Jim
