Description

As a Vietnam veteran and Phantom F-4 pilot, Colonel Gail Peck (call-sign “EVIL”) had been disappointed with the level of training offered to US fighter pilots. He was determined to ensure that they were unbeatable in the air, particularly against their Cold War adversaries flying the already legendary MiG fighter jets. Working with the support of General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, Jr, and under conditions of the utmost secrecy, the CONSTANT PEG program was launched with Peck as the original “Red Eagle.” This fascinating history was first revealed in Steve Davies’ acclaimed Red Eagles: America’s Secret MiGs, but this book is the insider’s perspective, complete with never-before-published anecdotes and photographs, revealing how Peck battled bureaucracy and skepticism to ultimately establish the premier fighter pilot training center.
