Reid Air Publications was born in 2005 to address a lack of updated books that detail modern military aviation. There are a thousand books that cover the F-15, A-10, F-16, etc, but most of them are at least ten to twenty years old. I thought it was time for some new releases. The first title in my line, The Viper Story, Part I: F-16s of the Air National Guard, was a direct result of spending the last several years chasing F-16s around the country. It was followed soon after by The Modern Viper Guide, which is a detail-oriented book aimed primarily at scale modelers. Since these first two projects, others have followed, with many more on the way covering all facets of modern military aviation. Each of the books are available from Reid Air Publications or a bookstore near you. For a complete list of current titles, e-mail me or check out the Reid Air Publications website.
