Produktbeschreibung
Flying at 500 miles per hour over North Vietnam in August 1972, a 14.5mm amour piercing incendiary anti-aircraft bullet rips through the cockpit striking the author in the chest. The impact renders him instantly unconscious. How did he survive? What miracle of fate kept this highly decorated combat fighter pilot alive? Find out in chapter 39. From twisting and turning along the bottom of the Grand Canyon in an F-100 "Super Sabre" (yes that was legal in 1967) in chapter 3, to diving through a thousand foot overcast saving nineteen army soldiers while almost hitting the ground due to the extreme weather situation in chapter 14; this is how heroes are made. Experience the intensity of more medal winning combat missions through vivid accounts of life and death scenarios; raising goose bumps all over you. Fly in the T-38 "Talon" crisscrossing the USA culminating in an ultimate adventure ferrying an F-5 "Freedom Fighter" from California to Tehran, Iran, in the dead of winter across the North Atlantic. A single error over those frozen waters could end in death. Feel the tension as he eludes enemy MiG fighters, surface to air missiles, and millions of rounds of anti-aircraft artillery flying the F-4 "Phantom II" from Thailand in major air strikes over North Vietnam. Besides combat missions, shop in Hong Kong, race taxi-cabs in Tokyo, buy lumber in the Philippines, and meet exotic ladies of the night. He does not shrink from baring his soul about alcohol, women, and the deadly business of killing the enemy. He tells it like it was, including battling boredom by flying Army helicopters, going to Special Forces Camps, and riding in Air Force spotter planes. If you can't take the reality of a warmongering, hard drinking womanizer, who lived and loved in the trying times of the Vietnam War -- don't buy this book. But if you can, buy it! You will not be disappointed!
