Unprecedented access to once top-secret aircraft.

Nijboer takes the reader inside the cockpits of the most revered and feared aircraft of the Cold War period, from 1947 to 1965. This book covers planes from the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, Canada, France and the Soviet Union including:

  • The Mikoyan MiG-15 Soviet fighter flown by Kenneth Rowe (formerly Lt. Kim Sok No), the first pilot to defect to the West during the Korean War
  • The Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star jet fighter that shot down a MiG-15 in the world's first all-jet battle

Each featured aircraft includes a pilot perspective on what it was like to fly these legendary aircraft on combat or reconnaissance missions written by well-known pilots -- many of them combat veterans from the Korean and Vietnam wars.
