any fluff or BL novels on Interceptor pilots??

I just finished watching Top Gun again, great movie, and I wanted to find some 40k fighter stories, and being how this is 40k years into the future I don't care about the guys tethered to gravity I want to learn about the guys flying in space!

Dan Abnett's "Double Eagle" is a corker for fighter fluff :)

As Tawa said, Double Eagle is a solid one.

There's some in Abnett's Sabbat Martyr as well (just a handful of pages, to my memory).

I think McNeil wrote a short story based upon the characters in Double Eagle called "Apostle's Creed".

There's a bit (a tiny, tiny bit) of mention of space fighters in the short story "Prince of Crows".

Whoops, didn't see you wanted space fighting.

Yeah, Double Eagle is all in the atmosphere. Avoid that if you want space fights.

No worries fellas, thanks for the input anyway.

Yeah I can't seem to find anything along those lines. Maybe I can write BL and ask them to pitch the idea to one of their writers.

There was one book were there was a scene involving a space bomber and escort.......I think it might of been another scifi book though.

This story just went up today

When Balle Prime is engulfed by a savage ork invasion, the forces of the Imperium arrive to destroy the greenskins and restore order to the world. The Imperial Navy launch bomber wings to wreak havoc upon the invaders, amongst them The Emperor’s Grace. Captain Mikal Bernd and his crew embark on a mission to destroy a vital ork fortification. But with ork fighters on their tail, will they survive for long enough to complete their mission?

That's awesome!!

I should request some more obscure fluff more often if I have this kind of luck! I hope it is a good read.
