Description

PRE-ORDER NOW: THE FIRST OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE RED ARROWS

“Occasionally, you and the team come within read of perfection, up there in the rarefied air of the skies. You never know when those moments will come, but it’s what you yearn for as a pilot.”

The Red Arrows represent the very best speed, agility and precision aerobatic flying in the Royal Air Force, and the people who wear those iconic red flight suits are rigorously selected not just for their flying skills, lightning-fast reflexes and nerves of steel, but for their mental resilience, courage and humility.

Written by the Officer Commanding and former Red 1 Team Leader, Wing Commander David Montenegro, and full of never-before-shared tales from pilots past and present, this thrilling history is both a faithful record and a fascinating account of not only what it takes, but what it means, to be a Red Arrow.

‘Inspirational . . . Precision, style and dedication. The Red Arrows are the ultimate in teamwork.’ TIM PEAKE

‘An exhilarating read! The next-best thing to taking the controls of a Hawk fast-jet. And you’re much less likely to throw up.’ BEN MILLER

‘Heart-pounding, exhilarating . . . A fascinating testimony of jeopardy, cool heads and the sheer exultant addiction of flying.’ SINCLAIR MCKAY
