  • Your Signal is Charley by Ron Rypel.
    From the author: "There is some history in it, as I write about the glory days of flying the old SNJ, the great SPAD ...! ... I describe the book as autobiographical fiction.... I needed to bend and twist real life to make the story work, but as I explain, most of it is basically true, although some of the flight events are old sea stories you might have heard before. As far as I know, they are true. .... Part of the book deals with my A4 experiences in Vietnam...."
