He does a great job of going in depth into the F16 and I truly felt like I was flying the aircraft from time to time.

Highly highly recommend to anyone who likes flying or aviation.

This is a really enjoyable book to read. Rosenkranz provides great detail and insight, really wrote a book that doesn't blatantly glorify war and writes in a way that creates a great visual.
