Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A compelling insider's view of the modern RAAF. AIR FORCE tells the action-packed, inside story of the modern Royal Australian Air Force, from East Timor and the Bali bombings to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Award-winning journalist and best-selling author Ian McPhedran brings us gripping personal accounts of fighter pilots' bombing raids over Iraq, spy planes over Afghanistan, the operational nerve centre of the Middle East war and the delivery of humanitarian aid in world trouble-spots. This compelling narrative of the RAAF's aircraft, leadership, traditions and personalities comes at a time of rapid change, as technology propels it into the next generation of air power and the futuristic era of stealth.
