This original short story was written by NY Times best-selling author Jim DeFelice (Leopards Kill, Dreamland). DeFelice wrote the scenario and script and worked with Team Aces to develop the exciting and realistic Namco-Bandai video game, which goes on sale this October.In the prequel story, Lt. Col. William Brass Bishop has proven that he is one of the best pilots in the world by flying through three wars and collecting several kills. Now Brass has moved on to what he has always considered a higher calling: hes become a test pilot, putting hi-tech, next generation aircraft through their paces.But life as a test pilot isnt all its cracked up to be. There are long, boring stretches. During a routine test mission, Brass finds his mind drifting back to his first days in combat over Bosnia. Hounded unfairly by his commander, Brass learned to become a fighting machine, every nerve of his being at one with his plane -- until one day when he discovered that wasnt necessarily enough.Now modern warfare is turning in another direction -- and pilots like Brass seem doomed to become babysitters to a flying supercomputer. Has he become obsolete? Or are there other reasons to fly?
