    This book had me laughing so hard I thought my sides were going to split. Educational, funny and true to life. It is the unvarnished life story of a one of the most colorful Tomcat drivers that puts you right in the cockpit and out on the flight line. Kudos to the Tomcat-Sunset.Org staff for creating this wonderful book.

    Now my "Go-To" gift book for real men, and the men who wish they were these men. As a member of VF-101 in the late 90's, this sure brought back some great memories of a time when Aviators and NFO's reigned supreme in the air, and knew how to blow off steam on the ground with style and good-ol'boy humor. This book brings those days back to life in spades. A must-read for every old AND new fighter pilot, who wants to know what it takes to fight to fly, dance with death and covort in the clouds. Best money I've spent in years... and suggest it for new Navy flight surgeons to know what the "Naval Aviator" is all about. Matt "Doc" Rings VF-101 '97-'01

    This is a fun, raw, action-packed collection of tales that covers Naval Aviation from the 1960s into the 1990s, and then shifts to aerial firefighting, which is every bit as exciting and dangerous. The stories are told casually, as if you were having a cold beverage with the main character and his friends. As a former F-14 radar intercept officer (RIO) and lifelong aviation enthusiast, I'm familiar with most of the subject matter, and I LOVED THIS BOOK. It was exciting and revealing. It concentrates on the adventures, but doesn't cover up the cost - as in the loss of good friends. If you are looking for a great aviation book, get this one!

    What a fantastic collection of stories! The informal nature of the book and the colorful jargon create an experience unlike any other. If you are interested in Naval Aviation, and especially if you have ever been fortunate enough to be involved in it, this book is a MUST for your library.
