Feel what it's like to prepare fighter jets, "smell" the jet fuel, and taste the fighter environment. One Desert Jet Turner is an aviation book introduction to USAF fighter jet culture written by an F-4/F-16 fighter mechanic who shares all. This aviation career book provides information from the same perspective about the USAF Thunderbirds, and accident investigation as observed by the author at Nellis AFB, near both Las Vegas, NV and Area 51. Earl Heron also details the sensational transition from F-16 mechanic to C-130 flight engineer. Unlike many books about fighters that are primarily pictorial, this work concentrates on the realities behind the images. This iBook includes improved illustrations that will display in color on capable devices.
