Time Flies: Reflections of a Fighter Pilot is a detailed insight into the exploits of a RAF pilot from the cockpit and in command in the air, on land and at sea. Covering interceptions of Soviet bombers off Iceland to defending Saudi Arabia in Gulf War One, this gripping biography follows his thirty-year career operating Lightnings defending the UK, F-4 Phantoms from HMS Ark Royal and defending the Inner German Border (IGB) as well as commanding a Tornado F3 squadron, including a deployment to Saudi Arabia in Gulf War One.
The author formulated the operational requirements for the Eurofighter Typhoon, flew with the Red Arrows, served as the deputy station commander at RAF Leuchars and led the Tornado F3 four-ship flypast over Edinburgh Castle as the Stone of Destiny was returned to Scotland on 30 November 1996. A serious study for the aviation enthusiast and military historian, this work is also sumptuously illustrated with rich and candid photographs to inspire modellers.
