A cocky, green pilot flies an old Cessna 150 across the United States in 1994. The "Kid" and his gonzo passenger Doc take to the skies in an unforgettable misadventure. From Scottsdale Airport, the "Canary" takes off and attempts to cross the "hump" on its passage eastward.
Fun and quick, nothing groundbreaking. Sorta like Norman Rockwell of the 1990s. Good traveling story.

Although it was a quite a short book, I really enjoyed it - it is a good story.
Pilots of Cessna 150s will get an extra bit of laughs out of it - I guess all the front wheels of early 150s shimmy.
excellent choice. Well narrated story for anyone dreaming of buying a plane highly recommended flows well.
What made the experience of listening to On Duct Tape and a Prayer the most enjoyable?
This is a great true story about flying by the seat of your pants. Go KID.
What other book might you compare On Duct Tape and a Prayer to and why?
Merchant of Death is similar. Sometimes you just have to jump in with both feet and go for broke.
Which scene was your favorite?
Doc smoking a joint on the tarmac.
