Our first novel for the adult reader! Based on actual accounts from American POWs in Vietnam, Phantom Pilot tells the story of Lt. Lance Wilkins, the pilot of a thundering Phantom F-4 fighter bomber. The son of a Baptist pastor, Lance is angry at God because of the untimely death of his twin sister.
Shot down on a routine bombing mission, Lance attempts to evade capture by reaching the relative safety of the Gulf of Tokin. Captured by two teenage Viet Cong guerillas, Lance is taken to the Hoa Lo prison complex, better known to the POWs as the ‘Hanoi Hilton’. Driven by love for his wife, Lance plans an escape attempt.
