About the Book
Matthew “Mathe” Stone and Jonathon “Finn” Finley, friends from different backgrounds, find a common desire to challenge their world in the extreme, seeking Tall Air.

Against their hilarious and frightful missteps as teenagers, through first loves, to their struggle to survive Naval Air combat in Vietnam, they couldn’t have done it without each other. Explore the best and the worst in them in their razor blade-edged odysseys.

Matthew Stone is the spirit of the 1960s—gamey, inventive, turbulent, wild, and smart, even in his buttoned-down and irreverent military fighter pilot world.

Read the horror, sadness, and exhilaration of Jonathon Finley’s father’s remarkable WWII reflections of B-29 air combat and how it shapes and prepares both young men to fight for the coin flip in their NAVAIR combat roller coaster in Vietnam—life, love, loss, and death.

Thrilling, tragic, and funny in the extreme, Tall Air is highly readable and an irresistible and authentic account of an extraordinary friendship. Join Mathe and Finn, in their heroism and sacrifice, as they reach for Tall Air throughout their lives. It will make you proud.
