Max talks about Get-There-itis accidents, and the time he got Get-There-itis, even though he was familiar with the phenomena. In that case, a crying 3-year old prompted him to continue flying into a storm where he began picking up ice. Max also talks about meeting astronauts Wally Shirra, Alan Shepard, and Chief Flight Director, Gene Kranz, who directed Gemini and Apollo missions.
