Mohammed Sulaiman was the son of a distinguished military officer of Saddam Hussein and the Iraq Air Force. He grew up one day wanting to follow his father's footsteps and fly. He graduated flight training and his experience resulted in him becoming a member of the Iraq elite VIP Squadron. It wasn't long before he became the pilot of Saddam and his family.
In this episode, Mohammed shares how he became Saddam's pilot and how he was in Baghdad at the military airport in a bunker during Desert Storm when all of the aircraft was destroyed by US bombing raids. He shares how things changed in that country and how his life was in danger, before escaping to America where he's raised his four children and has enjoyed the American Dream.
