Summary
Flying air attack missions. Learning to "trick" heat-seeking missiles with decoys and flares. Refueling in midair and rescuing pilots from the sea. The day-to-day of an Air Force officer's life is richly explored here. Students will discover how aircraft can hide from radar and look inside a jet engine and see how it works. Interesting amalgams, such as jets that can land like helicopters, are also presented. Fact boxes support the thrilling narrative along with detailed, bright photographs.
