Sneaking Through at Banning - Richard Bach - 1929 Detroit-Ryan Speedster- by Colin E. Bowley

Sneaking Through at Banning - by Colin E. Bowley

The adventure began in North Carolina where Richard Bach (the author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull) traded his modern plane for an old open cockpit biplane and flew it across the country back to his California home. Here he is almost home in his 1929 Detroit-Ryan Speedster, trying to beat the weather. "Banning fades slowly into the rain behind us....We are one mile from the opening between the clouds and the ground. If it stays open for another minute and a half we'll be through" - Richard Bach - 'Biplane'
