One Desert Jet Turner

A Perspective on Youth, Fighter Aircraft, and Cold War

By Earl Heron, A&P

The world uses fighters as a tool to defend its air space. Feel what it's like to prepare fighter jets, "smell" the jet fuel, and taste the fighter environment. One Desert Jet Turner is an aviation book introduction to USAF fighter jet culture written by an F-4/F-16 fighter mechanic (maintainer) who shares the nature of his relationship with fighter jets and their pilots, as well as his maturation in this defense field. This aviation career book provides information from the same perspective about the USAF Thunderbirds, and accident investigation as observed by the author at Nellis AFB, near Las Vegas, NV and Area 51.

Earl also describes the transition from F-16 mechanic [crew chief] to C-130 flight engineer. Preview this cross training and life experience!
