Review - The Best Hitorical record of the F-111 yet!, January 20, 1999
Bill Hamilton from Mountain Home, Idaho - I have been associated with the F-111 since Jan 1970 both as a crew member and a civilian instructor. I am Also the high time USAF F-111 instructor weapons systems officer, with 2500 hours. This book covers the aircraft in more detail than any I have yet seen and my collection of F-111 books is extensive. I have books that have been sent to me from people in Japan, United Kingdom, Australia and all over Europe and this exceeds them all. Out of 129 F-111A's I have flown 95 of them and out of 94 F-111E's I have flown 76 of them, so I feel sure of myself when I rate this book 5 plus stars and tell you it brings back many memories. Major Wm H. Hamilton, USAF, Ret.

After graduating from California State University-Northridge with a BA degree in History, Don Logan joined the USAF in August of 1969. He flew as an F-4E Weapon Systems Officer (WSO), stationed at Korat RTAFB in Thailand, flying 133 combat missions over North and South Vietnam, and Laos before being shot down over North Vietnam on July 5 1972, and spent nine months as a POW in Hanoi North Vietnam. As a result of missions flown in Southeast Asia, he received the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with twelve oak leaf clusters, and the Purple Heart. After his return to the U.S., he was assigned to Nellis AFB where he flew as a WSO (rightseater) in the F-111A. He left the Air Force at the end of February 1977.

During 1977 Don went to work for North American Aircraft Division of Rockwell International, in Los Angeles, as the Editor of the Flight Manuals for B-1A #3 and B-1A #4. Following the cancellation of the B-1A production, he continued in publications at Northrop Aircraft as a fire control and ECM systems maintenance manual writer on the F-5 program.

In October of 1978 he started his employment at Boeing in Wichita, Kansas as a Flight Manual/Weapon Delivery manual writer on the B-52 OAS/CMI (Offensive Avionics System/Cruise Missile Integration) program. Don was made the Lead Editor of the B-1B Flight and Weapon Delivery manuals to be written by Boeing (OSO and DSO Flight Manuals, and all aircrew weapon delivery manuals). He developed the Flight Manual for the E-8A JOINT Stars aircraft, and the Flight/Weapon Delivery manuals for the Boeing NWDS (Navigation and Weapon Delivery System) installed in the RF-4C and F-4E. He is presently the editor for Boeing's B-52H and B-1B Flight and Weapon Delivery Manuals.
