Echo of a Distant Planet

Book Description

How would alien intelligence contact earth? Shawna is an Air Force officer with remembrances of the future. Trapped in a structured military world, her unearthly memories persist for nearly three decades from the jungles of Central America to the frozen north of Alaska, culminating in a message from the stars.

This glimpse into the near future is based on the author’s extensive background with the C-130 transport aircraft, one of the world’s foremost tactical cargo airplanes. The U.S. Air Force and the Air National Guard are the focus of this journey into military aviation science fiction that combines the author’s extensive background with military transport aircraft and his training as a physicist.
