About the Author

Byron E Hukee is a retired USAF fighter pilot who flew not only the A-1 Skyraider but also the F-100, A-7D, F-5, and F-16. His 'virtual' book, the A-1 Combat Journal, on that website chronicles his one year tour flying the Skyraider in combat with the 1st Special Operations Squadron (SOS) 'Hobos'. This work contains details and introspective insights of each of his 138 combat sorties flown during that year. He has also written an article about a particularly interesting double search and rescue mission entitled Down There Amongst Them that first appeared in the October 2010 issue of Flight Journal Magazine.

Very good book. Lots of personel stories and photos of the Single Seat A-1J/H and my favorite A-1E/G in service with the USAF and VNAF. This kind of information is not found any where else. Would be great referance on making models of the Skyraider used in Vewt Nam.
