Dale Brown is just at the top of his game. From start to finish it is solid edge of the seat suspense. This gentleman has the power to hold your interest from start to finish. Dale Brown is a great writer.

Dan Brown at his military best. He is a great tech writer for military buffs and the plot was OK for the era it was written in. I do recomend it for aviation fans because as far as I can tell, not being an airforce pilot just an airforce wife, very accurate in the details.

Classic Dale Brown, and the book that brought him to the forefront of military fiction writers. Highly recommended!

This is a fun little sci-fi/military fiction about an older plane being used as a testbed for new technology becoming the most important single aircraft in the whole world.

This is set back a few years, with the Cold War still running strong, and some of the 'futuristic' technology feels a little dated and cumbersome, but is still believable.

Good military action novel, but it contained a lot of technical jargon/information. At first I tried to keep up with the technical passages, but eventually I just skimmed over them.
