Love it or hate it! very slow-paced. His time-traveling narrative technique was cool, but extremely overplayed. Could be subtitled: “My Personal Midlife Crisis"
Biplane is the story of Richard Bach’s solo flight into the American skies—a flight that became a personal quest to discover everything that lies beyond the ordinary. Includes an introduction by Ray Bradbury.
In Biplane, Bach basically flies across the country, dreaming of landing in the fields of 1929 and offering folks ten minute rides around their towns in his old biplane, sleeping under the wing, and the next morning flying to another town and doing it all over again. The biplane is his time machine and as he moves from place to place, Bach looks back into his own past--the other planes he's flown, the pilots he's flown with, his love of flight itself, all while getting to know the biplane. It's a quiet book. But somehow Bach manages to capture all the magic and adventure and romance of flight--he makes it seem like such an amazing, beautiful, freeing thing.

In 1964, Richard Bach (author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, among others) flew from California to South Carolina, traded his 1946 model plane for a 1929 model biplane, and flew back to California. This book is the story of his journeys, both physical and spiritual.

I’ve enjoyed some of his other books about his aviation adventures, but this one just didn’t interest me. It’s not bad and there are a few gems here and there, but I never really got into his meditations. I did like the idea of a simpler time when air travel was a lot less regulated and you could just land in any old field and camp out for the night. ( )
