6 Hours, 5 CD's, AbridgedFrom the Back Cover:
The unthinkable has happened. The Soviet Union has beaten the West in the technological stakes. It has neutralised America’s nuclear arsenal with a killer laser that can direct its superheated energy beam at targets across the globe.
In a desperate attempt to counter this threat the United States activates the one bomber in its fleet capable of taking out the laser installation before it is too late: Old Dog Zero One, a battle-scarred veteran B-52, stripped of its antiquated hardware and rearmed with the latest state-of-the-art weaponry.
In a suspenseful and spellbinding dramatisation of aerial combat, the bomber and its crew will have to challenge wave upon wave of surface-to-air missiles and swarms of deadly MiG fighters.
'Flight of the Old Dog' is a gripping thriller about the world of high-tech military aviation that few are privileged to enter. Dale Brown kept me glued to the chair, turning the pages as the aerial battle rose to a shattering climax, a terrific flying yarn’
STEPHEN COONTS, best-selling author of 'Under Siege'
‘Superbly crafted adventure… remarkable skill… Exciting! Dale Brown is a superb storyteller’
‘Far too good to be missed’
‘A sizzling thriller that becomes more and more tense as it progresses, great stuff’
