Military Capabilities in “The Devil Dragon Pilot” Book

I have heard from a few readers that have asked whether the military capabilities featured in “The Devil Dragon Pilot” are realistic.  I am proud to write that nearly all of the capabilities found in the book are 100% real.  Real aircraft, real locations, actual restaurants and hotels, as well as cities and countries.  Even the street names and specific runways are real.  Yes, they are real!  Certainly there is some fiction, like the excess Mach speeds, but that’s what makes it fun!

Please find the following videos on my YouTube Channel, or take a look at the links below.  These links demonstrate the capabilities found in “The Devil Dragon Pilot” book, and may help you as you read through the book:

Seeking Devil Dragon Pilot Readers!  Need your Aviation Photos for Instagram!

Based upon a reader’s idea (Bob Jefferies), I am seeking your photos taken from the air for The Devil Dragon Pilot Instagram account.

If you have cockpit or airborne photos you would like to submit, I’ll post for you, along with your name, onto the Instagram site. They can be air to ground, air to air, you in the cockpit, carrier based, or anything you feel fellow readers would like. Especially if you read the book, and have a great picture from one of the locations featured in a chapter!  Like this one from 45 Bistro Restaurant in Savannah, Georgia.  Thank you for your participation!

I think it’s a terrific idea, and I appreciate your input very much, Bob!
