Publisher's Summary

From combat to commercial flight, Wings of Valor contains 17 rollercoaster rides through air and space. Strap in and fly along with courageous men and women in today's combat aircraft. You'll experience amazing tales of dangerous airfield maneuvers, remotely piloted aircraft and drones, bringing a dead aircraft back to life, and communicating from air to ground in enemy territory.
Travel into the past with gripping accounts of combat missions in World War II and Korea, a firsthand account of the Bay of Pigs invasion, and the terrors of enemy ordnance falling on American soil. Learn about heroic pilots who become astronauts, and how the wounded recover from the horrors of war. Also included are vignettes about airplanes that have been converted into restaurants, restoring classic aircraft, and things you didn't know about airport security procedures.

Any additional comments?

This is just a collection of emailed questions and miscellaneous stories that turn out to be mostly harmless. There are 1 or 2 decent ones in there but it supplies about 15 minutes of pleasure and about an hour and a half of pain.

Great Variety!

I really enjoyed Wings of Valor. Each story had a unique setting and twist. Taken together they paint a picture of the brave and innovative men and women involved in aviation. Jack's read brought it all to life and kept me in the moment.
