    Sure to rank as one of the greatest aviation memoirs ever written, Viper Pilot is an Air Force legend's thrilling eyewitness account of modern air warfare. From 1986 to 2006, Lt. Col. Dan Hampton was a leading member of the Wild Weasels, the elite Air Force fighter squadrons whose mission is recognized as the most dangerous job in modern air combat. Weasels are the first planes sent into a war zone, flying deep behind enemy lines purposely seeking to draw fire from surface-to-air missiles and artillery. They must skillfully evade being shot down - and then return to destroy the threats, thereby making the skies safe for everyone else to follow.

    Frances says: "Fast and Furious"
    "Great memoir"

    Story
    Would you listen to Viper Pilot again? Why?

    I got this for a roadtrip out to Yosemite. It was great. The story was interesting and I'm coming to enjoy military humor. I don't know if I was just tired on the way back or the story was that good, but there was a part where he was being shot at by a SAM and I actually started looking out my car windows for incoming missiles. I hated for this book to end.


    What other book might you compare Viper Pilot to and why?

    Fighter Pilot: the memoirs of Robin Olds, similar story and method of telling, too real to be fake, but exciting and compelling.


    Have you listened to any of John Pruden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You've gotta be sh*ttin' me
