Filled with hundreds of unique and beautiful photographs as well as a first person accompanying text, this 200 page document will be a fascinating and unique addition to any aviation enthusiasts collection. Mike Ray carried his camera with him and shot thousands of photographs during this remembrance of the 1965 USS Hornet Far East cruise. This collection of images is the best of those photographs.

This book makes a wonderful gift for the retiring navy veteran.

I was strapped to airplane seats most of my life ... and I flew some really great icons of aviation. My last assignment was as Captain on the magnificent Boeing 747-400. Wheew! Great career!

I'm the proud owner of a copy of Mike's beautifully written and photographed book. As Mike's squadron mate in VS-35 aboard the USS Hornet on the '65 WESTPAC cruise I shared many of the experiences recounted in the book. I'm proud to count Mike Ray as a shipmate and friend.
