Today they seem to be boring old men, telling wild stories to anyone who will listen, but once they were the hottest pilots in the Pacific--men who could fly anything, anywhere, any time. And they've just been handed the chance to end their lives as millionaires.
A dying comrade has a secret he doesn't want to take to the grave....He knows where to find a cache of old Japanese air force planes--not wrecks lying all over the floor of some jungle, but planes in pristine condition, properly moth-balled and stored before the end of the war.But how do a group of retirees raise the money to finance a salvage mission of this size, without altering every other treasure hunter on the face of the earth? Wade Lovett, a handful of his old comrades, and his surprisingly practical grandson are determined to succeed. It will be the adventure of a lifetime.
