Author Jeremiah D. Jackson has released a new book, “The Flight of the Feral Chihuahua: In Pursuit of the Round-Trip Transcontinental Speed Record.”
The Flight of the Feral Chihuahua is a true story about the effort, challenges, and fears behind setting a new round-trip transcontinental speed record in a small airplane. Here, Jackson retells his exploits in modifying his homebuilt, experimental airplane, and then flying it 4,200 miles one winter’s day across the United States and back. Challenging him along the way were hours of fatigue, deep isolation, dangerous weather, and equipment failures. Offsetting these challenges were not only months of planning, state-of-art equipment, and extensive training, but also the love and prayers of friends and families, the author says.
