Description

For more than a decade at the height of the Cold War, the US Air Force operated a covert, top secret training program called CONSTANT PEG. In 2006 the program was eventually declassified – and the incredible story of America’s secret MiGs emerged. For the first time one of the original “Red Eagles” – Col. Gaillard Peck Jr – reveals what it was like to learn to pilot secretly obtained Soviet aircraft, enabling American pilots to train against the hardware they would have to face if the ColdWar ever went hot. America’s Secret MiG Squadron is the fascinating history of the men who trained to fly and maintain covertly obtained MiGs, for the first time providing an insider’s perspective, personal anecdotes, and photographs, revealing how Peck battled bureaucracy and skepticism to ultimately establish the premier fighter pilot training center – the real Top Gun.
