Red Eagles

£14.99

Product description

From the mid-1960's until the end of the Cold War, the United States Air Force acquired and flew Russian-made MiG jets, eventually creating a secret squadron dedicated to exposing American fighter pilots to enemy MiGs. In this program, MiGs were secretly acquired and made air-worthy, before selected ace pilots were trained to fly the assets as they were flown by America's enemies. This book tells the fascinating story of the Red Eagles, using recently declassified information and firsthand accounts from the pilots who took part in the program.

The book has blue boards and silver titles, and is in near-fine condition with a little light bumping to top corners and spine ends and a small blemish on the front cover. Contains two sections of glossy photographs, the majority in colour. The illustrated jacket has some light general marks and indentations; edges are slightly bumped and creased and the front right upper corner has a small closed tear, approx. 2 mm.

"Davies' Red Eagles is a fitting tribute to the pilots who died flying the Mi-Gs, and to all those who flew and supported the MiG training effort. His is a wonderful tale, superbly told, unveiling one of the last great unknown cold war stories." -Richard P Hallion, Air & Space (March 2009)
