This book is essentially a collection of photographs of the F-16 from the Thunderbird demonstration team, to the European scheme, to the Air Superiority scheme, to the US Navy Aggressor scheme. The photographs are accompanied by text which explains unique features of the photo. A useful reference for scale modelers who want to customize stock plastic kits. Plenty of shots of landing gear, IR sensors, cockpit (as much as can be shown for an unclassified document) and engine. If you're looking for information on how the bird actually works, you're better off with a copy of the "Falcon 4.0" PC flight simulation game manual or Shaw's "Fighter Combat: Tactics and Maneuvering" book.
Easiest reading for non pilot
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 21 years ago
This is definetly the easiest reading on how to fly and fight a modern fighter/attack aircraft. In the first 20 pagaes I learned more about air to air guns than I ever learned and I've read many manuals. I only fly computer simulators, but, like any hobby you want to be good at it. I've posted message,s on some of the other sim sites about this book because I think it is a must for sim enthusiasts. I also can now appretiate what these pilots must go thru to learn their craft.
It will blow you away!
