Dr. Robert Stark's Elixir for Success
Bob began flying larger planes, including the four-engine Navy R5D in which he made several over-the-sea flights between Hawaii and Travis Air Force Base in California.
Of the R5D, Bob says, “I hated that plane.” It seemed to him that invariably, and just at the point of no return, an engine would quit.

Courtesy of the Hawaiian National Guard, Bob flew other aircraft, qualifying in the B-17 and B-25 and logging some time in the P-38 Lightning and the P-51 Mustang.
