Have you ever met or even heard of a Christian fighter pilot? Now you have—I’m one. Come read about how an ordinary kid in a Navy family grew up to marry the toddler two doors down. Read about my teen years in Italy and how I, as a 130 lb. band geek, received a congressional appointment to the USAF Academy. Follow me through life as a cadet. Find out how we made our own fun with coke bottles, Frisbees, lighter fluid, super glue, a condom, a pillow case, and a lot of water. See pilot training from the perspective of the student and the instructor.
Once I’m all trained up in the F-15, I’ll strap you in with me. (It’ll be a tight fit because there’s only one seat and it’s mine!) Together, we’ll take my mission ready check ride and repeatedly spank Maverick and Goose in their F-14. Then we’ll scramble to fly into the night sky and fly out over the dark Atlantic to intercept Soviet TU-95 Bear bombers patrolling our east coast during the Cold War. Then we’ll join a 4-ship of Eagles to take on an unknown number or type of adversaries. See how our four jets did against six bad guys. During that fight we’ll peel off to go 1 v 2 against F-16s. I push as close as I dare against the barriers that would make this book classified. When you see what God enabled that 130 lb. band geek to achieve; you’ll get it: With God, nothing is impossible. But more importantly, see God’s fingerprints on my life and let me challenge your thinking about His amazing grace.
