Default F-16 books/novels

Does anyone know of books/novels that feature the F-16?

The only two that I have are Viper Pilot by Dan Hampton and Red Phoenix by Larry Bond.

If you like candid and explicit pictures of naked Vipers then I recommend " The Modern Viper Guide - F-16 C and D Exposed "

Then there's Basher Two Five, which is more of an E&E story really, but still very good.

A lot of the rest are mainly coffee table glossies with nice pictures but not a huge amount of substance

Maybe „Vipers in the storm“ and „Eye of the Viper“...

There was a fiction book that featured a pill popping American agent attempting to avert a nuclear attack, a Pakistani coupe de tat and a Pakistani F-16 pilot named "Khan" that goes on to fly a stealth aircraft that's basically a YF-23. It has air combat in it and even a nuclear attack on a city in India.

I picked it up in the new releases section in an airport almost 20 years ago (maybe 17,18 years ago) and I can't remember the name of the book. Typing in specific things from the book into Google gives me no result either, which is really weird.

Has anyone else read this book? I keep trying to remember the name of it and find it again, but I have not had any luck.

It had a B-50 Superfortress with crosshairs over the plane (which had nothing to do with the book lol) as the cover of the book.

I bought Eye of the Viper for my Nook last night! Exactly what I was looking for! I will get Vipers in the Storm next. Thanks for the recommendations!

I had no idea that Boyd was so influential in the creation of the F-16...I will have to read his biography sometime.

"Vipers in the Storm" is great if you want detail-driven, pure facts accounts of Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

"Viper Pilot" is great if you want embellished war stories from Desert Storm and OIF.
