“Fire on the flight deck!” Ominous words when living on an aircraft carrier hundreds of miles at sea. An American supercarrier flight deck is considered by many to be one of the most dangerous places on earth. Multi-million dollar aircraft launching, landing, and taxiing in the space of a few football fields, all orchestrated by a control tower and flight deck crew whose average age is 19. During the Cold War of the 1980s, this massive ship provided the largest, mobile weapon in the United States arsenal, instilling fear and respect among opposing forces.
While the supercarrier can deliver an awesome display of firepower, it carries an inherent danger for those who fly and work among the aircraft. Brian Donley survived boot camp and completed aircraft firefighter school to serve as a yellow shirt on the flight deck of the USS William Halsey. Would his training, will, and courage equip him for the most challenging day of his life?
Darren Sapp’s breakout novel delivers the sights, sounds, and action of a supercarrier. He served in the inaugural flight deck crew of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt as a crash crew member and yellow shirt aircraft director.

I could feel the immensity of an aircraft carrier and all that they go through in a single day protecting our country. I learned an awful lot about the Navy from this book.
I enjoyed the narration of Patrick Freeman
