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.

Subject-Naval Aviation

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.
