To be equally enjoyed by professional aviators and aviation buffs with limited
technical knowledge, this biography brings to life the legendary aircraft that
scored the highest kill ratio of any U.S. fighter aircraft in the Vietnam War.
The book is filled with authentic re-creations of Crusader-MiG fights and vivid
descriptions of the people and events that are part of the F-8 story, including
John Glenn's 1957 record-breaking flight across the United States in three
hours and twenty-three minutes. As the Navy's first supersonic aircraft, the
Crusader holds an honored spot in carrier flying, and the author shows why it
is called one of the most capable, versatile, and long-lived aircraft in naval
aviation history. Barrett Tillman effectively combines an exciting account of
the F-8's operational history with a detailed and authoritative explanation of
its design, construction, and modifications. Tillman recalls the years of
frustration and experimentation spent in refining the aircraft and its gunnery
system, and then takes the reader through key actions in Vietnam where seasoned
pilots handled their "rambunctious steeds" with scarcely a glance in the
cockpit. Extensive appendixes provide further details.
