Air show jets power through the sky in tight formation. Engines roar as the jets twist and dive, just inches apart.

In this book, you will discover: how air shows and demo teams have evolved; what dangers pilots face during every maneuver; how pilots achieve their closely synchronized flight maneuvers; and what it takes to be an air show jet pilot.
