Robin Olds

Robin Olds (1922-2007) was a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot. A triple ace, he achieved a combined total of 16 victories in the Second World War and the Vietnam War. Born into an army family in Honolulu and raised in Virginia, he was educated at West Point, where he was an All American football player. He fought in Europe during World War II, and was regarded as the best wing commander in the Vietnam War. He was promoted to brigadier general after Vietnam, and also served as Commandant of Cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy. His memoir, Fighter Pilot, was published by St. Martin’s Press in 2010. Olds’ daughter, Christina Olds, who holds a B.A. in creative writing from Vassar, compiled his writings with Ed Rasimus, a retired USAF fighter pilot whose books on the Vietnam air war include When Thunder Rolled and Palace Cobra.
