            April Fool's Day, 1992. Author Gordon R. Page receives a call from a business associate offering him the chance to travel to Russia in hopes of acquiring a rare World War II fighter plane. He's waited for this call for years-and it's not a joke. Packed with action, intrigue, and ...danger, Warbird Recovery delivers Page's gripping true story of his journey to Russia to recover the aircraft and fulfill a lifelong dream. In bitter winter conditions, Page journeys to St. Petersburg, Russia, in an attempt to recover a rare German Bf 109 fighter plane. But everything about traveling in the former Soviet Union only reinforces the vast differences between cultures. Placing a call, buying lunch, and even riding in a taxi-to say nothing of buying an aircraft-prove to be strange and dangerous. Putting his life at risk, Page discovers that he must learn to negotiate and have plenty of cash on hand to ensure both his safety and his return to the United States. Yet nothing can compare to the excitement he experiences upon finding lost aircraft. Unfortunately, chasing a childhood dream just might cost him his life.

            As new missile shield programs are put into place, the need increases for information on the latest systems design techniques and component technologies. This book explains how to properly assess war-fighting capability by examining detect, control, and engage processes in the co...ntext of the combat system. The authors present a systems engineering approach that can be applied to new systems under consideration and to existing operational system designs. Using this approach, performance tradeoffs can be made between the sensor (radar) and weapon (missile) that support the development, testing, and fielding of a balanced system. The text also addresses battlespace performance assessment.
