Book Review: Flight To Heaven, A Plane Crash...A Lone Survivor...A Journey to Heaven and Back, A Pilot's True Story by Captain Dale Black with Ken Gire
Dale Black at age 19 was a young man full of dreams and ambitions, prideful and anxious to get busy living his life to the fullest, he was also a young man that had a passion for flying. On a Friday in 1969 he scheduled a day to fly with an experienced pilot and friend. After arriving for his scheduled flight time he was paired up with another seemingly experienced pilot. This new pilot was the main pilot on that day, while Dale's friend an experienced pilot was the co-pilot. Dale climbed in to the small back seat of the plane. While taking off they crashed and Dale was the only survivor. He was in a coma for 3 days and during this time was when he experienced Heaven. For a long time after the crash he did not remember, then he could not articulate what had happened, then he felt that the time was not right to share his experience (especially after his talk with his grandfather).
This was an amazing book and one that was heart-stirring in Dale's experience, humility, and determination to do God's will.
The book does a great job in setting the tone in the beginning of the book as far as the youthful exuberance of Dale at the time of his accident.
Dale is forthright in his telling of the story, without added bravado or embroidering.
The scenes of heaven are overwhelming and must have been tedious to use the right words to describe it.
This is a book of a miracle in a young man's life, and I'm so glad that he shared his story!
A little over 7 minutes.
