From the cover: The Red Arrows have delighted spectators throughout the world with their breathtaking acrobatic skills since 1965. Their exciting programmes of shifting formations, looping and rolling, have become the favourite centrepiece of hundreds of dramatic air displays remembered with delight by air enthusiasts everywhere. The nine Hawk aircraft and their pilots may be the stars of the show but the story of each Red Arrows performance is also the story of many weeks of meticulous preparation both by the pilots and the equally vital members of their support organisation. Together they comprise what many would regard as the worlds top acrobatic team.
Only three new pilots can join the Red Arrows each year so flying and working with the Team is indeed a rare and rewarding experience. The brilliant Japanese photographer Katsuhiko Tokunaga has had that privilege and his stunning air-to-air images combine with the definitive commentary of Team Manager Squadron Leader Andy Stewart to create this superb and intimate portrait of these masters of precision flying.
