This "boys will be boys" novel is the best military comedy since Richard Hooker's MASH.

Too many stories have been written about pilots. They fly the planes, drop the bombs and get the girls. All the glory goes to them. But in those stories, who do you think fixes the planes enabling the pilots to fly? The answer is, Crew Chiefs! Crew Chiefs work hard but they also have a bad reputation for playing and partying hard. They like to have fun, nothing gets by them, and everything and everybody is fair game.

Follow Kyle Mansfield and his fellow C-5 Crew Chiefs as they take you behind the scenes to one of the Air Force's busiest flightlines. Join the wild and at times unbelievable adventures of the boys while they work, drink, fight, chase women and laugh their way through life both on and off the flightline.

Remember the movie Stripes staring Bill Murray? In the movie there was a scene where all the soldiers were sitting around and introducing themselves to each other. When it came around to Bill Murray he said, "Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual. But now I know why I have always lost women to guys like you. I mean, it's not just the uniform. It's the stories that you tell. So much fun and imagination." This book tells many such stories.

About the Author

Keith Myers started his career as a "431XX" crew chief at Dover Air Force Base. The majority of his career was spent working on or in conjunction with C-5s. He was also a crew chief on C-141s and C-17s. Twenty of his twenty four years were spent on the flightline. He deployed to over 120 locations around the world. He retired from the Air Force in 2011 from Rota Naval Station, Spain.
Keith currently splits most of his time between Hawaii and Spain (ironically using space-A). You may find him surfing the waves in Waikiki or possibly spot him at Duke's Barefoot Bar. His time in Spain is spent with his son. The two like to follow their favorite soccer team FC Barcelona or attend an occasional bullfight.
