I rather enjoy the Dale Brown Dreamland series. The later Tinman plot is getting silly, but I still find them entertaining.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.

Ward Carroll's "Punk" series. Equal parts Stephen Coonts (who, IMNSHO should have quit after "Flight of the Intruder," which was quite good) and Joseph Heller.

If your looking for that might be called Semi-Fiction you should give Dale Browns, Hammerheads and Storming Heaven a read. Both books are Pre Tinman so they are pretty darn good.
Hammerheads: Border Security is now done with Active law enforcement instead of Re-Active law enforcement and the V-22 gets to show it's stuff.
Storming Heaven: Just think 9-11 but with more financial backing.
Chains of Command is good also. Standard Mil-Av book but the main star is the FB-111, Also introduces Browns first major female character.

I like Mark Berent's five book series on Southeast Asia. He weaves a lot of different platforms into the story line through the series.
Walt Boyne's books are also very good. He wrote The Wild Blue and also the multi-part Eagles series.

Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (cant remember read so many), when the 747 smashes into capitol hill. The book had me riveted for hours. Very dramatic! I remember watcing him on CNN after 9-11.
Why is it my best contacts are when no one else is looking!

Tom Clancy - Red Storm Rising - the scene near
KEF when the B52s arrive "there was enough electromagnetic energy in the air to grill the birds in flight".
Nothing more to say.
