Résumé How far can one fly without an engine? Wallace Scott pushed that limit during his 36 years of soaring, setting four world records, winning the Lewin A. Barringer trophy for longest free distance soaring flight 20 times, by winning two Smirnoff Derby's, and with his legendary 1970 dual 716.95 mile world record flight with Ben Greene. Using parts of Wally Scott's personal journals and his many Soaring magazine articles, WA (Whiskey Alpha) is the story of 'a John Wayne type of a guy' who pushed himself with every flight. Wally Scott was one of the band of pilots that made Odessa, TX into a famous soaring site and he will always be remembered as the pioneer of free distance soaring - and as Boots' husband.
