Just finished it, and I really enjoyed it. Goe's over life in the FAA in the 60's and 70's, life on board our last 'true' carrier, and what it was like to work within a real state of the art air group. It's about the Marathon 2500mile mission by two Buccaneer's from the old Ark Royal as a show of force to prevent a Guatemalan invasion of what was then British Honduras (now Belize). The last paragraph is particularly brilliant, as it speaks of how just as Maggie was told about the Falklands, she asked if Ark was still available. 'You never know what you've got, till it's gone' Too right.
