January 17th, 1991. Peters turned the Tornado through sixty degrees. He and his navigator, Nichol, needed to make a fast escape. The enemy SAM-16 missile, travelling at twice the speed of sound, was fired at the Tornado.
The missile locked on to the heat of the jet fighter’s engines. It closed in quickly before – BOOM – it blew up one of the engines. Now the pilot and navigator faced a life-or-death decision. Should they eject over enemy territory? What would happen if they were captured? Get struggling readers flying high with this punchy true-life story of real people fighting to survive in the danger zone. Written in accessible language by prize-winning author Anthony Masters, and illustrated with line drawings, it combines a reading age of 7-9 with an interest level of 9-14.
