Wings of Armageddon
Meet the Author


Meet the author of Wings of Armageddon, Richard Montalvo Jr. who was a B-52G aircraft commander, flight commander, and assistant operations officer. Hear his description of his journey from the grape fields of the San Joaquin Valley, where he worked as a Mexican American migrant worker, to the cockpit of America’s most lethal aerial weapons system. In his book, he will share his wild, never before experienced, ride through the dark foreboding aerial trenches of the Cold War and vividly relate what it was like for SAC’s pilots to fly the nuclear-armed B-52G during this tense and brinksmanship-based period of our history.
