content_pasteA great series of action packed modern aviation techno-thrillers. And check out the movie, "Flight of the Intruder", based on Stephen Coonts’s experiences in Vietnam as an A-6 Intruder pilot.
content_pasteThis 2003 book is a sort of "oral history" of the BoB, little on the strategy/politics and hardware, mostly personal stories based on conversations, old letters, diaries, etc. of the fighter boys themselves. Plenty of flying and action, but focused on the personal stuff.
content_pastePhantom in Combat tells the story of the F-4 in combat from the pilot and Weapon system operators' perspective. It contains blow by blow accounts of some of the more famous engagements between MiG's and Phantoms.
content_pasteA colorful picture book about humans going to Mars, how they might realistically go about this, and where this might lead in the future.
The missions were simulated with specially developed add-ons in the freeware Orbiter space flight simulator, and most of the graphics are screen captures from Orbiter, though some are real photos from NASA. Intended for ages 10 to adult, the book includes an appendix with details for each page, including information on the add-ons used in Orbiter to create the images.
