Strap into a mortar-fired parachute, a rocket powered ejection seat and fly with Col Chuck Lehman in the fastest single engine jet fighter ever built, the F-106 Dart. Feel the exhilaration of hurtling through the blue at a mile every 2.35 seconds, the “G” forces and the satisfaction of keeping the bad guys out of our airspace.
You’ll laugh at some of these stories, sweat out a few and ask, “How could he have been so stupid?” in others. These confessions bare it all. Sense what it was like to live and work as a fighter pilot in an environment of huge egos, unbridled confidence and an eagerness to push it to the edge—and sometimes over it. As Chuck says, “Just keep the pointy end forward.” Also get acquainted with the F-102, F-86, Harrier, T-33 too, and even the ubiquitous Gooney Bird.

"Angels Three Six is a collection of stories about fighter pilots during the cold war. The author and many of his friends had a number of exciting experiences flying jets during these times. It tells of the experiences of these pilots during the Cuban missile crisis and the preparation and execution of missions to protect against Soviet bombers. All of the stories are true and happened either to the author or his pilot friends. Col. Lehman has an easy-going pleasant way of telling these stories". - Gilbert Cook
