Format: Paperback
Robert Trevor never planned to crash-land his F6F Hellcat into a farmer's cornfield somewhere near Topeka, Kansas. That frustration is nothing compared to the jolt he gets when he finds himself in a strange, non-technological world. No one speaks his language, and certainly nobody has parts for his rebuilt WW-II airplane. As he can't get his plane out of the cornfield until harvest, it only makes sense to help Kaylee, the widow who runs the farm, with the help of her kids.

He doesn't realize that a clash between local warlords has created a very real danger for Kaylee's family, the farm, and the entire community. Robert must fly his new family to safety. In the process, he finds himself right smack-dab in the middle of the warring factions as both sides envision the addition of the Hellcat to their battles of sword and sorcery.

The plot to "Flight of the Hellcat" reminds me of "Planet of the Apes." However, Mr. Cross' obvious love of airplanes and detailed depiction of an alien culture lift the story above the line of old-style time travel. I was impressed by the way he handled the concept of bigotry without vilifying or sanctifying characters on either side of the age-old problem. His characters are people, combining warts, sulks, and sweetness in a convincing fashion. While the story changes direction several times, it doesn't drag or lose its interest.

Even now, a couple of weeks after I read it, "Flight of the Hellcat" lingers in my mind. If you enjoy adventure novels with a spice of culture clash, you'll enjoy "Flight of the Hellcat".

A surprisingly good read! As I began reading it in the beginning I found it tame but as the story progressed it grabbed my interest. I ended up reading it in one sitting. A few twists and turns.The characters were interesting especially the interaction between Robert and Pap and the relationship between Robert and Jenny. Probably not a book for everyone but for those who like lighthearted fantasy I'd recommend it.
