    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.

    Story
    What did you love best about Viper Pilot?

    What a great book! This is one of the few books (listens) that kept me on the edge wanting to hear more! I was stationed on an aircraft carrier in the early 80s working the flight deck. I was always intrigued by the pilots that made the take-offs, and especially the landings, so effortlessly. Only after listening to this book did I get the full picture of what it takes to be one of those pilots. The details as narrated were awesome. To hear how the battle over Iraq as managed by these fighter pilots was great! Loved the book and I'm sure I'll listen to it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Viper Pilot?

    Details of the attacks and avoidance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Intense!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it! I want hear more!

    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I am purchasing it for a family member.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adam Brown. A true American Hero.


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have not read the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I listen to books during my hour long commute to and from work each day. While listening to this book I found myself in tears while driving down the road. I would have to stop listening to the book a few miles before arriving to to work, so I could dry my eyes. Last night when telling parts of Adam's story to my wife, I couldn't do it without crying. I'm not typically like this. The story of Adam's life and how he cared so much for his family and his Navy Seal brothers changed my life forever. To hear throughout the book how Christ touched his life and inspired him to be the man he was truly opened my eyes. I call myself a Christian, but now I know my life must change and include Christ in everything I do, like Adam did. My heart hurts for Adam's family. May God forever watch over his family and his Navy Seal brothers. God bless you Adam Brown. Thank you for you time in service and thank you for wanting someone to tell your story from the beginning. Listening to your story has truly changed my life.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Eric for telling this story the way you did. I loved it and I am about to download it for my wife to listen to and purchase the book for a family member.
