Following the successful format of previous Specialty Press Military Photo Logbooks, this book offers readers an excellent photo compilation of all the great USAF Air Defense Command interceptors from the entire Cold War era. Beginning after World War II with the propeller-driven Northrop P-61 Black Widow and North American F-82 Twin Mustang, the Air Force's aerial intercept mission entered the jet age with the fabled North American F-86 Sabre, Northrop F-89 Scorpion, and Lockheed F-94 Starfire, all of which are still high-interest aircraft today. Colorful and unique mission-support airplanes such as the C-124, EB-57, EC-121 Constellation, and T-33 are included as well as the famed next-generation Century Series supersonic Air Force interceptors such as the McDonnell F-101B Voodoo, Convair's F-102 Delta Dagger and F-106 Delta Dart twins, and the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter. All the great aircraft flown by the Air Defense Command are well documented here with rare archival and candid photography.

Review:

As you'd expect, the book is chock full of photos of the planes used during this time. I do believe that just about every unit is covered in some way or another. The photos are superb and are sure to inspire. You can add this title to a large list of excellent books from Specialty Press. ---Modeling Madness, reviewed by Scott Van Aken, July 2010

The photos presented here are excellent, ranging from popular photos to never-before-seen photos. ---Internet Modeler, reviewed by Chris Banyai-Riepl, July 2010

USAF Interceptors is a great picture album interwoven with concise history. A treasure trove of visual reference. ---Starship Modeler, reviewed by Terrence J. Misele, August 2010
