Squawk 7700 - An aviation autobiography
Buckle your seat belt and prepare for an eye-opening, turbulent ride into the world of aviation from the pilot's seat. From student pilot at age 15, to flight instructor, to nighttime cargo pilot, and finally to first officer aboard the ATR 42 and ATR 72 turboprop airliners, island hopping across the Caribbean, Buffington relates his personal experiences. He explains why recent accidents, like Colgan Air Flight 3407, in Buffalo, NY, and Comair Flight 5191, in Lexington, KY, can occur. Buffington's life story brings him full circle to God while choosing family over a career as his top priority in life. A modern day aviator struggling to maintain a relationship with God while an industry pulls him further away.
