Recounting the exploits and achievements of three of Australia's most important fighter/attack aircraft of the postwar era. The Phantom is an extraordinary aircraft which was developed for the US Navy as a shipboard fighter but was so good it was also purchased by the US Air Force in very large numbers. Vietnam was the Phantom's war, its versatility coming to the fore and its success complete. The Hornet was subsequently turned into a naval fighter with McDonnell Douglas taking over prime responsibility for the program. In the book, the background to the Hornet is examined, as is its evaluation and selection by the RAAF, the all important local industry involvement in the manufacturing program and of course its service. The simple, small and light Skyhawk enjoyed a production life of a quarter of a century and is still in front line service with several nations around the world.
