We're going to land on what?!
What did you love best about Forced Landing?
The reliving of the Doolittle raid.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Of course. With the in-flight abduction of an airliner, the theft of an aircraft carrier, and the mutiny and theft of an Iranian submarine all coming together at once how could you not be involved with the plot.
What about Thomas Block’s performance did you like?
Mr. Block wrote the book in the first place consequently you never have to wonder if the nuance of the narration is true to the intent of the author.
Any additional comments?
Of course the constant action in the story keeps you interested and makes the story a page turner. However, it is obvious that Mr. Block has done his homework over a vast range of expertise. History; the operation of B-25s off a carrier during WWII and flight deck testing of a C-130 during Vietnam. Nautical; sub operations down to the fact that a test firing of a tube would negate further firing if the correct steps weren't followed. Also the fact that this carrier had an elevator trunk instead of deck edge elevators like modern ships. And as always Mr Block's excellent understanding of aviation in general.
