Publisher Comments:

Steve Davies, military aviation photographer and critically acclaimed author of Red Eagles, is back with a new photo-essay on American's cutting-edge fighter fleet. Davies examines the F/A-18C/D/E/F Super Hornet, F-15E Strike Eagle, F-16CG/F-16CJ, F-22A Raptor, and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, taking readers on a complete behinds-the-scenes tour of these fearsome jets, from the hangers to the skies. In between, Davies explores the cutting edge technology that makes these birds fly and interviews the pilots and ground crews that make them sing. Join Davies for this all-access tour of the mighty jets that help keep America the world's only air superpower.
