- Technothrillers and Fiction Books about Air Combat.

A Techno-hriller is an action based novel which uses military hardware in a detailed or semi - realistic way. Spy, war and action thrillers have always been popular but the late 1980's saw the emergence of books with a lot more technical detail supporting the narrative than had been the case.

J. D. Wetterling - F-100 pilot and Air Combat author. J. D. Wetterling's airbase in Vietnam, 1968-69.  It's interesting from a flight simmer's point of view - the terrain is dead flat and the coastline is straight. If we saw this in a sim we'd complain about the lack of realism!
