Publisher's Summary

Americans are fascinated by the undeniable mystique of the elite world of Navy fighter pilots. In Bogeys and Bandits, Robert Gandt takes listeners on a thrilling ride in the FA-18 Hornet, one of the fastest, sleekest, and deadliest aircraft in the world.
Gandt lived and worked with several pilots learning to fly the Hornet: the identical twins from Middle America; the computer nerd with a penchant for speed; the grandson of a Tuskegee Airman, trying to live up to a proud legacy; and two women dealing with the post-Tailhook world of the Navy.
Gandt weaves superb technological details of the Hornet and an insider's look at the highly demanding training program with portraits of the day-to-day lives of these very real people aspiring to fulfill a dream. Bogeys and Bandits will hold listeners breathless as they soar through the skies in the cockpit of the fastest and deadliest fighter plane in the world.

gave up

The narrator is irritating and not to mention the pauses between sentences, it just comes across like the fast rambling old man

Interesting Story

Good story but in my personal opinion Thomas Block sucks as a narrator. He sounds like he slurs his words and loses interest in reading the story. The voiced he uses for certain characters are cringe-worthy. I did not enjoy this book because of this.
