About This Book

Reviving a feature of old aviation magazines, author Tim McLelland invites you to place yourself in the cockpit as he shares detailed accounts of what it is really like to sit inside a warplane, describing the views, smells and excitement of military aviation. McLelland has been lucky enough to experience flying in a wide range of military planes – something few civilians, and these days few journalists, get the chance to do – ranging from the Chipmunk and Bulldog to huge multi-engine craft and front-line combat aircraft, such as the Jaguar, Phantom, Harrier, Buccaneer, Hawk, Hornet and Tornado, not to mention an extremely rare opportunity to fly four full display routines with the Red Arrows aerobatic team. Combining narrative, interviews and descriptions of handling aircraft, this book offers a unique insight into military flying.
