The Art of RAF Display Flying : A History
The Art of RAF Display Flying is an exciting photographic history book looks at all aspects of RAF display flying, past, present and future. Since the Hendon Air Pageant of 1920, the RAF has been entertaining crowds with their displays. This book traces the history of these events from their early days, through the '50s and '60s heyday of jet display flying with the numerous teams of now classic aircraft (BAC Jet provost, Hawker Hunter, English Electric Lightning, Folland Gnat), to the current gruelling selection and training processes faced by modern teams like the Red Arrows, exploring the technicalities, difficulties, and thrill of photographing this fast-paced and colourful world.
