  • Final Flight
  • content_pasteFinal Flight (1988) continues the adventures of Jake Grafton as he tackles terrorists. Good F-14 Tomcat action. Am I the only person who noticed the uncanny similarity between this book and a movie released shortly after - "Under Siege" with Stephen Seagal foiling the efforts of terrorists to hijack a battle ship?
