Short Desription

Unlike most "histories," this book tells the story of the 14th Fighter Squadron in the words of the pilots who were there. Filled with riveting accounts of combat flying, this book is a must-have for all aviation buffs. The squadron has a unique history, starting out as a reconnaissance squadron in WW II flying Spitfires and Lightnings. Late in the war, they became the first reconnaissance unit to be equipped with fighters to escort their long-range missions.

In Vietnam, they became the only tactical reconnaissance unit in theater, taking their RF-4Cs north into the Vietnamese air defenses, oftentimes with no escort. Today flying the F-16 Fighting Falcon in Japan, they stand ready to defend America and her Allies. Open the cover, strap yourself into the cockpit of a Spitfire, Lightning, Mustang, Phantom, or Viper, and find out what it's like flying in and training for combat.
