This is an audio book of the article by Gerry Gilroy "Vampire Bail-Out (A True Story)".

It took some prompting to get Gerry to put his tale in writing. I for one am glad he did.

With the assistance of his editor Michael Minich he has created a clearly told story of the event and what lead up to it which is both interesting and informative. The results clearly show his pragmatism and coolness in a very stressful situation.

Gerry is only one of a few R.C.A.F. flyers to have bailed out of a Vampire Jet Aircraft and survived.

Give a listen to this well told tale. [12 minutes 35 seconds]

Thanks to Eric Smyth (retired radio announcer) for reading this Audio Book.
