Book Description
 

FLIGHT OF THE OLD DOG by Dale Brown - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Dale Brown.

The United States and the Soviet Union are on the brink of nuclear war. At a top-secret research facility at Kavaznya, Sibera, the Soviets have developed a ground-based laser weapon capable of shooting down American satellites, and they are betting that the American president doesn't have the guts to risk starting a nuclear exchange.

But at a top-secret flight test site in the Nevada desert called "Dreamland," a team of test pilots and engineers have created the Megafortress: a venerable B-52 Stratofortress strategic bombers modified with stealth technology, computers, digital avionics, state-of-the-art weaponry, and performance-enhancing features that makes it unlike any B-52 bomber--or any other warplane--ever flown.

Now it's time to flight-test the Megafortress, and the Air Force assembles the best pilots, bombardiers, and navigators to see what this creation can do. One of them is Captain Patrick McLanahan, considered the best B-52 bombardier in the Air Force. The others on the crew are hard-charging pilots and world-class engineers, and McLanahan is nothing like them. But the team leader and aircraft commander, Lt. General Brad Elliott, can see that McLanahan is a quiet professional and a natural-born leader.

Soviet spies soon discover the Megafortress, and they recognize that a fleet of these advanced planes can practically neutralize all of the Soviet Union's air defenses. Back-channel negotiations begin, and the U.S. is willing to mothball the Megafortress if the Soviets mothball the Kavaznya laser. That is completely unacceptable to the Soviet leader, and he hatches a daring plan to deal with the Megafortress while keeping his devastating laser weapon.
