Testing Top Guns
US Air Force and Navy Test & Evaluation Squadrons... Covering: Edwards AFB, Eglin AFB, NAS Patuxent River, NAS Point Mugu & NAWS China Lake.

By J. Hunter

North Spin Recommended!
This is as good as it gets as far as a book that concentrates purely on US test units... Which is good, because it's really the ONLY book! All the major bases and units are covered... In just the first few pages I learned a few things I didn't know, and at least 3/4 of the photos are previously unpublished to my knowledge. Eglin in particular has a lot of fresh material... Well worth the money.
