Hornet Flight was one of my first novels easing out of the hardy boys phase (yep, I was that bad). A beautiful plot expertly bringing together various sub plots and in the right pace. Had it been anyone else I would have taken very badly to the almost magical love story and the mid-air refueling but Ken Follet has a way of writing even such tried-and-tested stories expertly. What can I say, this is not a masterpiece but definitely worth every penny/ cent/ paisa you spend on it. Full time pass and enjoyable at that.
