Summary
One of the most decorated fighter pilots in history, retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Dan Hampton goes back one hundred years to tell the extraordinary story of the most famous fighter planes and the brave and daring heroes who made them legend. Drawing on his expertise, Hampton shines a spotlight on the pioneers who have ruled the air from World War I through the Cold War to today. He provides unique insight into gutsy pioneers such as Manfred von Richthofen and his red triplane and the flyboys in the iconic P51 Mustang who faced the Nazi Lufwaffe. Here, too, is a thoughtful look at modern air warriors, including Hampton's own exploits in the high-tech F-16 Falcon. Interwoven throughout this sweeping narrative history is Hampton's personal account of traveling the world to find these storied aircraft. Strapping himself into the cockpit of such planes, he shares the thrill and experience of flying each. Exhilarating, told in his acclaimed high-octane style, Lords of the Sky is a fresh look at the development of aviation for history and military buffs alike
