The overflowing joy I felt when I flew freely over the skies of my country on an aircraft with Korea’s national flag painted on its body was also short-lived, for I had to fly the skies of my country beset by the tragedy of an internecine war. I had to bomb the mountains and rivers of my own country, even if it was in defense of freedom. The tragedy of using the aviation skills acquired under such harrowing conditions against my own compatriots was certainly not just my own personal tragedy. We must never again repeat this tragedy. Hence, we must all become masters of our own time and history and, with wisdom and courage, step forward to achieve our nation’s reconciliation and cooperation. All these wishes and meanings are embedded in the title of this book, To Fly Korea’s Skies
