The first of the Patrick McLanahan series, This is a must read for any aviation nut. This book explains the beginnings of the series, some of the characters will be killed while the rest continue on through the series. Based on real world threats, the men and women of Groom Lake are the best the world has to offer, dedicated to protecting the United States no matter what the cost. A page turner from the first to the last page.

I started reading Dale Brown when I was deployed. Well I have not been able to put anyone of his book down. Very well written.

Once started, book cannot be put down. If one enjoys military aviation & prays for the good guys to win, this is the book for you. The CD is an excellent disc to listen to for a trip, I wish it could have been unabridged! I was disappointed by the other reviews, I love Dan Brown & if I wanted to read the classics(Ovid, Plato, et al) I know where I can get them-at the public library. Book was a thrill to the end & I enjoyed the fast pace, especially at the end. A must read for action.

Flight of the Old Dog is one of the best books I've ever in read in my life, it wasn't quite as good as some of Dale Brown's other books but still a fabulous book.

Definitely one of the top five books of military fiction ever written. Destined to be an all time classic. Dale Brown is a master story teller rivaling Tom Clancy.

I picked up this title a number of months back after being disappointed and disgusted with the phone-book sized diatribes that the novels of Tom Clancy have become. While Brown largely ignored the politics, he also ignored the element that makes good fiction (or even subpar fiction) readable: good characters. Within the first fifty pages it became apparent that Brown intended to tell a story of good Republicans flying good old American machinery against the evil Commies. While similar criticisms can be made of Clancy, I knew he was in trouble when the plane McLanahan flew in the bombing exercize that opens the book were better characters than the pilots themselves. At least, even now, as Jack Ryan has been reduced to a foul-mouthed platform for Clancy's conservative views Clancy still makes a decent attempt at keeping him interesting. Brown's McLanahan is the only character I remember by name, and even he is a character only in that Brown gave him a paint-by-cliche backstory. Brown failed to make me enjoy his characters, and therefore I could not care about them. Therefore, the action sequences (already bogged down by heavy-handed technical descriptions that make Clancy seem like Ernest Hemingway) failed to engage because I could not care about the characters in them. If this is the 'best' Brown can do, as the reviews seem to indicate, I think I'll skip over Dale Brown next time I am shopping for books.
