Overview

Bogeys and Bandits by Robert Gandt

Thirty years after he graduated from the Navy's fighter/attack school, Robert Gandt returns to participate in the rigorous training program of the class of eight Navy and Marine pilots learning to fly the F/A-18 Hornet. Meet the identical twins from Middle America, the computer nerd with a penchant for speed, the grandson of a Tuskegee Airman trying to live up to a proud legacy, and two women dealing with the post-Tailhook world of the Navy. He shares their joys and failures, hopes and fears, from the first classroom briefing to bombing exercises in the high desert of Nevada to the final, harrowing qualifications aboard an aircraft carrier. Bogeys and Bandits puts readers in the pilot seat, holding them breathless as they soar through the skies in the cockpit of the deadly F/A-18 Hornet.
