I really enjoyed this book; I agree it was brief but I read it in one hour during a hospital wait and I thought it was well written and interesting and a great diversion at the time. There was no padding and the stories all fascinating. Excellent value and ideal for the kindle.

I am of an age where I knew several US pilots who fought in VietNam.
This book reminded me so much of their entertaining sang-froid and yet it didn't pull punches about the dangers of naval aviation.
Many of the stories didn't have a happy outcome.
If only the book were 3 times as long....but how many near-fatal incidents can a pilot have in one career?

Entertaining enough but very very brief...like this review...
Get it if you want a reasonable read that you can finish and then discard.. after a short haul flight perhaps

I really enjoyed this book of favourite flying stories. It's one of those books that deals with situations just after the second world war when the jets were making their presence felt, especially on carriers. This was written with great wit and yet the incidents were anything but!

A good writing style allowed the reader to feel that they were part of the scene. Wish it had been longer!!

Not a great deal in terms of volume, but it graphically and frequently humourusly describes real life experiences in the process of learning to land hot jets on aircraft carriers. Hats off to those who do and respect for those who didn't make it.

I liked the short sharp stories that were mostly based on the author's experiences first hand. If I have a criticism it could only really be it was too short!

Did. not convey the true excitement of one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
AT times I wondered if the stories related to the auth
