The Red Arrows are the world’s greatest aerobatic display team. For decades they have thrilled crowds with their exciting mix of precision formation flying and breathtaking aerobatic manoeuvres.

They promote British industry; they represent the Royal Air Force with huge distinction; and they help with recruitment for the British armed forces. But above all they are the great entertainers, performing for millions of people all round the world.

Packed with fabulous photographs, many of them being seen for the first time, The Story of the Red Arrows explores the history behind the team, its pilots and crew and its instantly recognisable red aircraft, first Gnats and now Hawks.

Read about the team’s greatest moments - the triumphant tours to the USA, the Middle East and Far East, topping the bill at the Farnborough Air Show and their elevation from the early beginnings in the 1960s to superstar status almost 50 years later - but also their worst times as the team came to terms with tragedy and threat.
