Fighter Pilot : Mis-Adventures Beyond the Sound Barrier with an Australian Top Gun
The candid adventures of a real-life Top Gun
Mac Tucker—or "Serge," to use his callsign name—is one of an elite group of men trained to fly F-18 jets. Now, for the first time, Serge takes you behind the scenes of the fighter pilot world to reveal what it's really like. Find out how it feels to be shot at by SAS snipers, to be lost in a $50 million jet over Northern Australia with nothing but car lights to guide you home, to rupture your sinuses while flying, to inadvertently bomb a yacht, and to face death on an almost daily basis. From the Pentagon to the South China Sea, the deserts of Australia to the wars of the Middle East, this book is as action-packed as it is entertaining.
