- Thunderbirds - Skies of Thunder Produced by the USAF Thunderbirds during the 50th anniversary season (2003).

- Thunderbirds by Martin Caidin.
Writer Martin Caidin spends time with the team and flies with them in the 1960 season. Fitz was the Boss at the time. This book was written 1960, and published various years in the sixties depending on edition. This is one of the most enthralling Thunderbird books to escape in that I'm aware of. It is 260+ pages. Available at Amazon.com and Alibris.com
