You’ll have to find someone else for the job.”

Another six inches and that machine gun fire would have taken on of our engines off. But we still had to reach the coast and my fuel indicator needle seemed like it was the fastest moving piece of equipment on the airplane. I looked out the window to confirm what I feared: Those bullets had spared our engine but not our fuel tank.
