This volume takes you aboard ship and places you in amongst the scorching, high pressure world of flightdeck ops, Enterprise-style. Illustrated with over 150 sharp action photographs taken on, or above, the 'Big E', and accompanied b y a th oro ughly exhaustive text, (this) is US naval aviation today at its finest."
