Publisher Comments:

The perfect gift for Father's Day: "Simply the best explanation in print of why naval aviation is the ultimate challenge, and what it takes to get there". — Stephen Coonts, author of Flight of the Intruder

Americans are fascinated by the undeniable mystique of the elite world of Navy fighter pilots. In Bogeys and Bandits, Robert Gandt takes readers on a thrilling ride in the FA-18 Hornet, one of the fastest, sleekest, and deadliest aircraft in the world. Gandt lived and worked with several pilots learning to fly the Hornet: the identical twins from Middle America; the computer nerd with a penchant for speed; the grandson of a Tuskegee Airman, trying to live up to a proud legacy; and two women dealing with the post-Tailhook world of the Navy. Gandt weaves superb technological details of the Hornet and an insider's look at the highly demanding training program with portraits of the day-to-day lives of these very real people aspiring to fulfill a dream.

Bogeys and Bandits will hold readers breathless as they soar through the skies in the cockpit of the fastest and deadliest fighter plane in the world.

"With clarity, detail and experience, Gandt transports readers into the cockpit ... of the FA-18 Hornet .... Bogeys and Bandits is about as close as one gets without arming the ejection seat". — The San Diego Union-Tribune
