* Stunning operational air-to-air photography
* First-hand descriptions of flying the Mirage 2000 fighter bomber, arguably the most exhilarating modern combat aircraft in service anywhere in the world today
Ride shotgun with an elite fighter pilot during operational sorties over the world's war zones. Every stunning air-to-air shot captures the thrill of fighting aircraft in their element. Join the fast-jet set in action over the Gulf, Bosnia and other war zones. See F-16s, Tornadoes and Mirage 2000s streaking into the attack at the edge of space and through mountain valleys at treetop height.
Every shot has been taken flying operationally - no cosy organised photo-shoots here. Every picture tells a story. In this book, the man who was there and is one of the RAF's best-known fighter pilots - Ian Black, tells the facts behind shots.
