Okay, I am an unabashed Stephen Coonts fan. This 1986 novel set in the Vietnam war period features 26 year old Jake Grafton as a US Navy pilot in combat. It is the first novel in the 10 book Jake Grafton series and it was also the first to be released as a movie in 1991.
Frankly, Stephen Coonts' books are of inconsistent quality, but the worst are excellent. Since the beginning of Coonts' Tommy Carmellini series, all books in both series have had Grafton and Carmellini as co-protagonists.
Narration is excellent, but Coonts changes narrators too often in his 38 audiobooks.

Where does Flight of the Intruder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This audio book is top 10% among all of the ones I have listened to.
What did you like best about this story?
A lot of books start with a good premise that gets lost along the way. Coonts starts, follows through, and delivers an awesome conclusion to a fantastic book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I have never given up on finishing a book but I have made an exception with this book. Reads like a diary and so describes separate events that I found to be of no interest to me. Gave up with 5 hours left if I still had a live membership I would have returned for a credit.
The narrator did his best.
What made the experience of listening to Flight of the Intruder the most enjoyable?
The knowledge of flying and controlling an A6 Intruder was compelling, yet it did not overshadow the characters or plot.
What other book might you compare Flight of the Intruder to, and why?
Frederick Forsythe does his homework equally well.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
too many to count
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
I can see why the original book remained in the charts for so long when it was first released.
