Stunning Photography   (2010-10-17)
I-SCORECARD (Review Rubric)
I liked it...a lot. The photography is splendid. As a Naval Aviator himself, LCdr Heatley had unrestricted access to photograph the featured aircraft in flight.
Content-Outstanding and extensive photo coverage of multiple aspects of the subject matter
Organization-well laid out, easy to navigate
Readability-Books like these are commonly referred to as "eye candy." Great printing also.
Education-A great primer for those studying NavAir at the height of the Cold War
Currency-For 1986, this was the best that you could get. These still rate as some of the best pictures of U.S. naval aircraft that I have seen.
Authoritativeness- As a Top Gun aviator, the photographer would be considered as one the most authoritative subject matter experts.
Relevancy-This book would be an excellent image resource for those conducting research on naval aviation in the 1980s., and is also a good book for aerial photographers to study.
Durability-The information (images) in this book has stood the test of time.
