Publisher Description

Inspired by actual events. Suffering from the later stages of Alzheimer's, Captain Tom “Winkle” Brown is a retired RAF test pilot and World War 2 veteran approaching his century year.

When 36 pristine Spitfires are discovered buried deep within the Burmese jungle, he gets a surprise visit from Grant Global Industries, with a most intriguing proposition.

Author's note: In 1987 an amateur pilot Mathias Rust (18 years old) flew his Cessna F172 through Soviet air defense during the height of the Cold War. He successfully touched down his tiny aircraft in Moscow's Red Square.

Imagine what a seasoned fighter pilot could achieve? South American drug runners outfox US coast guards all the time and land on Florida's lush golf courses at night.

Ask yourself a question: Could a highly trained Spitfire veteran dog-fight MiG-29s?

Frontline heat-seeking missiles won't lock on to a low emission piston engine. Most air-to-air engagements take place over 25 miles away, ruling out the need for cannon ammunition to be loaded (some Eurofighter Typhoons actually have their guns removed).

The Spitfire is a weapon, not a weapons delivery platform like today's fighter planes. Modern jets stall at around 120 mph; a Spitfire is still effective at speeds below 80 mph. You'll be surprised what she's capable of in the right hands.
