Laming, Tim.


1st ed., 1991. Xxii + 202 pp., photo-plates. D.j., 24 x 16cm. FINE. For the first time, this book takes the reader behind the scenes of the making of an RAF pilot and into the fascinating world of the military fast-jet. The author talks to the pilots of the Phantom and Tornado interceptor aircraft, to the instructors and students, and hears what would-be fighter pilots think of their training, as well as the instructor's views on the challenges their students have to face. Putting the reader in the cockpit, this book describes what it is like for these trainees to take to the air and finally to fly operational missions with a front-line squadron. With unique photographs.
