5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hostile Skies - My Falklands Air War 31 juillet 2009
Par Hart Fessenden - Publié sur
Hostile Skies is an excellent "in the cockpit" account of flying Harriers off the carrier Hermes during the Falklands War. A great read that compares well to virtually any flying book you can name.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent read 1 février 2009
Par Bunkman22 - Publié sur
David Morgan gives an outstanding account of his personal experience leading up to and during the Falklands conflict. His writing style is eloquent and very easy to follow. His ablity to relate his flying experience puts you right in the cockpit with him, as if flying along in a two-seat Sea Harrier. His description of his double A-4 Skyhawk kills was both intense and thrilling....sad as well given both his victims did not make it. For anyone interested in military flying, wartime ops, carrier operations, air combat and putting bombs on target, I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb 2 septembre 2009
Par Lawrence Mifsud Bonnici - Publié sur
For that is this book's neatest and to the point description. The narration is flowing, easy to read and follow but never simple or banal. At times he gives interesting technical detail which does help the reader formulate a better perspective of how a fighter pilot faced combat in which no quarter was given. Having also read Sharkey Ward's account of the Falklands air war I found interesting differences. David does away with petty over-the-top interservice rivalry and prefers to lace his barbed arrows eloquently rather than throwing brick bats all over the place. I feel that Sharkey Ward's rendition is excellent, actually outstanding, as regards tactics, strategy and aircraft but at times spoils it with his megalomaniac attitude. Fair enough as one expects excellent fighter pilots to have equally huge egos. However David Morgan has that literary finesse which enables him to render an a more entertaining account interlacing his feeling towards his family and lover smoothly within the narrative.

My personal classic is when David Morgan describes one particular harrowing approach to land in highly demanding weather. When the ship captain asked the Flyco 'in no uncertain manner' what was this pilot doing, Flyco replied with a laconic 'Sir, I think he is crashing' Brilliant!

P.S. Eventually the landing turned out to be successful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sagas are sagas - away with you nitpickers...!! GREAT book! 10 septembre 2012
Par john - Publié sur
David Morgan writes from his heart - about the airplane he loved - in combat - more than any other. For Lt. Cmdr. Morgan, that airplane happened to be the SHAR.
It was a winner. That is as contentious a statement as he was trying to make. For what you read about in this book is not a compilation of dry statistics - production figures by type, speed records and battle honors won - but a sentimental account of one pilot's love affair with an airplane - one he depended upon to do his job and get him back home again, alive.
One thing more. Tales told by "Old Fighter Pilots" are sagas. Away with you nit-pickers and carpers. You alleged "truth-seekers". If you wish to argue "extended wings versus slats", "point fives versus 20mm or 30mm cannon", look elsewhere. Sagas are sagas. Dammit - treat them as such...!! Outstanding book - from a warrior "who was there...!!"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The definitive Falklands War Harrier story 14 octobre 2013
Par Euan Kilgour - Publié sur
Having read the other books pertaining to the air war over the Falklands from the British point of view, this book rates as the best. It doesn't have all the technical detail of Sharkey's book, nor the perspective of a fish out of water RAF Harrier pilot like Jerry Pook, but David's account is the most personal. His struggle with homesickness, the day to day dreariness aboard the carrier, the moments of sheer terror laced with chronic fatigue, flying combat air patrol in a single seat single engined fighter low level over some of the most inhospitable parts of this planet. How he is still struggling to come to terms with what he was asked to do back in 1982, all of this you feel as you turn the pages. Mr Morgan has gift for words the others lack, and it shows.
