Sinopsis:

"...Perhaps it is the early morning chill that awakens them. They are mostly young and enthusiastic - but combat is a maturing process that can change a youth into an adult overnight. ...At last they have suited up and completed the briefing. The weapons are loaded and the aircraft are servicable to fly. The pilots forget the anxieties and tension of the early morning hours. ...The peace of the morning is shattered by the rising crescendo of the engine noise. ...Then they are rolling into a steep dive upon the waiting target. Their hands inside their gloves are sweating; their mouths are dry." Vlamgat is the gripping story of the South African Mirage F1 jet fighter pilots in action during the tense years of the bush war. Their experiences are authentically told with accuracy, humor and pathos - by an author who writes from the cockpit.

About the Author:

Dick Lord was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and traveled to Britain to join the Royal Navy as an Air Cadet in 1958. In 1959, he qualified as a fighter pilot, flying Sea Venoms and Sea Vixens and serving on board numerous aircraft carriers. He returned to South Africa in the early '70s and joined the SAAF, flying Impalas, Sabres, and Mirage IIIs. During the bush war, he commanded 1 Squadron, flying Mirage F1AZs. Dick Lord is currently at work on his third book, detailing his personal flying experiences while serving with the Fleet Air Arm, the United States Navy and the South African Air Force.
