THE ABLE QUEEN is a historical memoir that follows little Bob Binzer, an eight-year old who climbs trees to watch airplanes take off from Meigs Field and dreams of flying, through the beginning of World War II, his enlistment in the Army Air Corps and the attack on Pearl Harbor, when he finally gets his chance to learn to fly. What he does not know is that his mission will be in China, flying dangerous cargo over one of the most treacherous air routes in the world – the China Hump. As a Hump Pilot in the CBI Theatre of War traversing the Himalayas Bob faces the dangers and fears of every combat pilot, narrowly escaping air raids and mountain tops, outrunning the enemy and out-flying catastrophic storms. 1st Lt. Binzer makes many narrow escapes, but his luck runs out when he and his crew are forced to bail out of a doomed C-47 during a storm over a remote mountainous area of China populated by headhunters. What will it take for this young pilot from Indiana to survive being lost in the Himalayas?
