Although the synopsis reads as though this was a factual account , it is in fact a novel, and an interesting and amusing novel at that , with strong characterisation ( not least of Oscar , the belligerent black cat who is a base mascot ) , some suspenseful moments, and sufficient references to the techniques used in the aircraft to satisfy the pilots amongst us. Like all Gann's books, highly recommendable
