Summary :

Once perfected, the aircraft nicknamed 'DreamStar' will be America's new air-superiority fighter and the world's deadliest combat-ready weapon. Even the advanced 'Cheetah', a heavily modified two-seater F-15E, is beginning to show its age – relegated to being the older, less 'intelligent' cousin of DreamStar. But, unknown to the Cheetah’s pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Pat McLanahan – former navigator of the B-52 'Old Dog' a KGB mole has infiltrated the DreamStar project. When the mole hijacks the superplane, it is up to McLanahan to get the fighter back – despite the overwhelming odds stacked against him. With its thrilling dog-fights, nail-biting suspense and convincing characters, Day of the Cheetah is the ultimate novel of high-tech aviation. It rockets to a breathtaking and shattering finale.
