Riassunto: From the carrier launch in total darkness to the gut-dropping rolls through enemy antiaircraft fire, Peter Hunt puts you in the pilot?s seat for the flight of your life.
Moments after Desert Storm began, bomber pilot Pete Hunt was in the air over the Persian Gulf. Hunt saw it all, and this is his electrifying account. Tested to the max, flying all night, every night for weeks on end, Hunt executed dozens of missions?from carpet bombing to dropping deadly five-hundred-pound cluster bombs with pinpoint precision; from supporting Marines on the ground to bombing fleeing Iraqis along the blood-soaked ?highway of death.?
His A-6 jet was a wide-open target for the blazing antiaircraft fire streaking up to destroy it. Escaping this deadly blizzard of fire made setting the A-6 back down on a little deck in a big ocean seem almost easy. But Hunt, like the rest of his squadron, the VA-145 Swordsmen?honored as the premier Attack Squadron in the United States Navy for 1991?was just doing his job: keeping America free.

Peter Hunt was born in Northport, New York, in 1962 and joined the United States Navy in 1985. After pilot training he was transferred to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington, to fly A-6 attack jets. During his active duty, he flew 2,180 hours, 45 combat missions in Operation Desert Storm, and made 450 carrier-arrested landings. He completed three deployments of six months each to the Western Pacific, Indian Ocean, and Persian Gulf: two on the U.S.S. Ranger, and one on the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk. He left active duty in 1995 and currently lives in Washington State with his wife and two children. Hunt now works as a pilot with one of the world?s largest airlines.
