Publisher's Summary

Americans are fascinated by the undeniable mystique of the elite world of Navy fighter pilots. In Bogeys and Bandits, Robert Gandt takes listeners on a thrilling ride in the FA-18 Hornet, one of the fastest, sleekest, and deadliest aircraft in the world.

Gandt lived and worked with several pilots learning to fly the Hornet: the identical twins from Middle America; the computer nerd with a penchant for speed; the grandson of a Tuskegee Airman, trying to live up to a proud legacy; and two women dealing with the post-Tailhook world of the Navy.

Gandt weaves superb technological details of the Hornet and an insider's look at the highly demanding training program with portraits of the day-to-day lives of these very real people aspiring to fulfill a dream. Bogeys and Bandits will hold listeners breathless as they soar through the skies in the cockpit of the fastest and deadliest fighter plane in the world.

    Where does Bogeys and Bandits rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a decent book, worth reading if the subject of military combat is your thing. The parts where characters actually developed and either flew or failed were great, but there was a lot of telling rather than revealing, so this book felt more informative than entertaining.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robert Gandt? Why or why not?

    I would, but I'd read the reviews first.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The night carrier landings were exciting, and the camaraderie, competition, and politics within the squadron were entertaining.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction.


    Any additional comments?

    Kudos to the author's choice of narration. I have listened to many books told by Thomas Block.
