So what do Fighter Pilots do when they take off their flying suit for that last time?
They put on an airline uniform of course, go back to the bar (do they ever really leave?) and pretend their gold Rolex is a Mig from the 'good old days'.Picking up where he left off, Serge recounts more crazy adventures from his time as an Australian F-18 Topgun and how he transitioned to flying Jumbo Jets and other exotic aircraft all around the world.
From running out of fuel in a Jumbo over Thailand to diverting away from US airspace so as not to be shot down by trigger happy US fighter pilots; being bombed by Australian fighter jets only to survive and then be attacked by a wild steer; fishing on the Great Barrier Reef with 250kg bombs and hunting for Moose with a 300 thousand watt radar; and his most dangerous mission yet - getting married, having children and turning his sheep shed into a house whilst doing terrible things to all flora and fauna within a 2km radius as he attempts to retrain himself as a farmer.This is the next machinegun-fast and hilarious book from Mac 'Serge' Tucker, the author of Fighter Pilot.And you thought airline flying was safe?
