Thrill to stirring tales of bravery and challenge in the air, to aviation at the edge of endurance. The pilot who faces the unknown, who by chance flies higher or faster than he should, or hurtles into combat against overwhelmingly better armed opponents, or is lost over enemy territory in a crippled or burning plane: he is every aviation enthusiast's hero. Here are 16 such stories, taken from real events in both world wars, Vietnam, the Falklands, and Kuwait. Exciting and unforgettable.
