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“...

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.

A nice publication is F16, from Salamander Books, Ltd. 1992 by Doug Richardson

"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.

Vipers in the Storm is by far the superior book, as is "Eye of the Viper", which is a book about F-16 flight training.

Viper Pilot is insufferable trash, lots of bullshit, lots of needless space filler.
