Mac Tucker, or 'Serge' to use his callsign name, is one of an elite group of men trained to fly F-18 jets. Now, for the first time, Serge takes you behind the scenes of the fighter pilot world to reveal what it's really like.
Find out how it feels to be shot at by SAS snipers, to be lost in a $50 million jet over Northern Australia with nothing but car lights to guide you home, to rupture your sinuses while flying, to inadvertently bomb a yacht and to face death on an almost daily basis. Relive the adventures of a real-life Top Gun and find out what it takes to become part of this elite force.
From the Pentagon to the South China Sea, the deserts of Australia to the wars of the Middle East, this book is as action-packed as it is entertaining.
Sit back and strap yourself in for an exhilarating ride to the sound barrier and beyond with Mac Tucker, an Australian fighter pilot and real life Top Gun.

      Strap yourself in for the ride of your life! Serge spins a rollicking good yarn about his time as a fighter pilot in the Australian Airforce. Whether you're an aviation enthusiast or just an armchair adventurer in search of excitement, this book is an exhilarating pager-turner. It reveals fascinating insights into a way of life most of us would never experience. A highly enjoyable read that would also make a good gift.
