Review: Have you ever wondered how to fly an Air Force F-22 Raptor Fighter jet? Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be in the Air Force? Then stop wondering and read the book Todays U.S. Air Force to find out all about the Air Force.
This book presents a good introduction to the Air Force, and includes everything from what is needed to join the Air Force, to how it all started, the types of missions, the weapon systems used, and the various parts of the Air Force. Believe it or not, pilots are only one part of the Air Force, and many other people are needed to make this group work.
Today's U.S. Air Force is excellent for keeping my interest because it shows pictures as examples and explains what could happen and how to deal with things - like how to use the guns and what type of missions Air Force cadets have been sent on. Overall, I enjoyed Today's U.S. Air Force, but I would have liked to read more real stories of what people have really been through. First-hand accounts of being in the Air Force and in action would add an element of excitement to this book.
