In the Books

A fighter jet is at the top of the runway, afterburners glowing, quivering with power waiting to be unleashed. We watch, we listen, we can barely contain our anticipation. This is OUR plane, Tom. We know him well. We live in his world, a world contained in the book series Aeroplane Adventures.

 

They are stories of risk, ultra-challenging flying, aeroplane friends pushed to their limits and then surpassing them. And they are stories of pulling together to get the job done.
