Over the past century, the Navy's aviators and supporting crews have played an integral part in wars and peacetime operations around the world. Their everyday dedication to detail and skill have paid off in the times that matter most. Each member of an aircraft carrier's 5,000-person crew plays a role in these missions, whether they're making sure the ordnance is secure, revamping an engine, or manning a rescue helicopter. In this landmark book, Alvin Townley recounts experiences of service members who survived days adrift at sea, made midnight rescues in deadly storms, crash-landed behind enemy lines, and other situations when unparalleled training and focus were the only things standing between life and death. Filled with tales of survival, physical courage, and sheer perseverance, "Fly Navy" pays tribute to the members of this elite military force.
