Flight of the Angel and The Conquest of the Conquistadors Part 1

A North Korean physicist wanting to defect to the United States, seeks out CIA agent Commander Charles Garrity at a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meeting in Bonn Germany. She has valuable information about a plot by several rogue countries to launch an attack into the United States from an al Qaeda training base in Northern Mexico. The trail of weapons and terrorists across the globe from Libya to North Korea, through Venezuela and into Mexico is a tale of intrigue and deception, all the while being pursued by the high flying U-2 Spy Planes and Military Forces throughout the world.



The Flight of the Angel

The Flight of the Angel and the Winds of Allah is the first book in the Saga. Set in contemporary setting about global terrorism as seen through the eyes of the U-2 Spy Planes circumnavigating the globe fielding information into the Combined Air Operation Center at the 9th Recon at Beale AFB in California, to the decision makers in the CIA, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the White House, and to the expediters of a plan from the Navy Seals, US Submarine, an Aircraft Carrier, UAV and F-35 Fighters.

Our story centers around a CRUCIAL EIGHT DAYS and begins when a U-2 Spy Plane is dispatched to confirm the report that Iran is mining the Strait of Hormuz. In the process, the Iranian Air Force launches two aircraft to shoot it down. They are intercepted and warned off by two Fighter aircraft from the USS Reagan, but not before they manage to damage the U-2 and force it to crash off the Coast of Oman. The story unfolds in events that lead us on a precipitous path with Iran; a nuclear laden Israeli submarine in the Persian Gulf, SA24 Russian shoulder mounted surface to air missiles smuggled onto the beaches of Gaza, and an operational plan that could easily spark a war.

11 Dash line

A little history here.  In 1946 after the Japanese occupation in the South China Sea, China claimed sovereignty over a 11 dash line drawn in the SCS encompassing some 120,000 square kilometers.  In 1954 the Chinese adjusted to a 9 dash line to pacify the Vietnamese on some islands.  At the time there was little interest to contest this land grab since most of the islands were little more than uninhabited atolls.  But today in the rush for oil and gas exploration there is a challenge to this questionable claim of the high seas by China.
