This unusual and interesting title explores a fascinating area of contemporary military aviation. The US military is constantly testing and evaluating some of the most advanced aviation systems in the world to prepare them for front line service. At test bases such as Edwards and Eglin, a host of interesting aircraft types are flown and tested to the limit. The US Navy test bases at Patuxent River, China Lake and Point Mugu have similar functions. The units based at these locations undertake some of the most taxing flying in the world. Their aircraft carry a fascinating array of ordnance, equipment and colour schemes. These squadrons boast some unique aircraft and rich histories.
Testing Top Guns examines the background and history of flight testing in the USA and then portrays some of the incredible aircraft that have been used in the these programmes in recent times and the famous test pilots who flew them who have helped to shape aviation history. The book is heavily illustrated with high-quality images, including air-to-air views. This title will appeal to all those with an interest in the cutting edge of military aviation. Its many superb colour images will be a source of inspiration for aviation modellers.
