about this item
Hidden in the Nevada desert is America’s most advanced aerospace weapons-testing facility. Dreamland is the place where the nation’s top minds come to develop artillery and aircraft that push beyond the cutting edge. And where the Air Force’s top guns come to test them – on the front lines of a new era in warfare…
DREAMLANDThe fiasco of a spy's infiltration has the Pentagon looking for an excuse to close Dreamland down. To clean up the mess, and save Dreamland from the congressional chopping block, Lt. Colonel Tecumseh Dog Bastian is sent in. He's just the guy to shake things up, and does so when a situation erupts in Somalia. Into a hotter-than-hot war zone, he sends his own daughter, the pilot of a Megafortress bomber, with a high-tech, unmanned flight system that could make or break the future of Dreamland.
As politicians push for more budget cuts, Colonel “Dog” Bastian must do what he can to salvage a key experimental program known as ANTARES – a method of merging electronic data with a pilot’s natural senses. In need of quick results, a test pilot is hooked into the system – a system that allows him to operate several planes at once directly from his brain. But when he can no longer distinguish reality from computer-induced delusions, Dreamland’s worst nightmare comes to life.
