Flight Of the Old Dog - Dale Brown

Desperate death ray defence.

Who are the bad guys? The Russians? How did you guess? Anyway, they have come up literally with a death ray, and decide to shoot down some US aero intelligence assets. The US of course gets grumpy and sends some B1 bombers etc. to deal with this, and promptly lose them too.

Luckily for them, they have McLanahan and his technology. In this case one of the huge old bombers that has been updated to use as a flying defence platoform with new sensors and weapons capability. They need it badly because at the momen the Russkies can missile who they like.

The only problem that they have is that it is pretty untested, and some of the only people that can crew it are noncombatants, and no-one knows how they will react if the Russians start deathraying them.
