These four pals love zooming through the sky. But when trouble blows in, are they as good at brainstorming as they are at barnstorming?

Tom the F-14 Tomcat has a need for speed. Convinced he’s only valued for his ability to break the sound barrier, the mighty fighter jet is determined to win a race to Australia to keep his airshow alive. But when a rival F-15 Eagle tricks him into skipping refuelling, the supersonic plane fears he’s let everyone down as his tanks run empty. Can Tom get help from his talented friends and finish the contest before it’s too late?

"A fantastic novel for kids (and people of all ages) about the adventures of 4 very different personalities, as they fly across the skies having adventures along the way. A book of learning, not just about how airplanes work but also about life lessons."

Amazon Review

"Leona Cobham tells a good yarn. With three short stories, you can get through one as an evening bedtime story and there's plenty of humour along the way."

Al Suttie, editor, Brooklands Bulletin
