A detailed insight into the exploits of a Royal Air Force fighter pilot straight from the cockpit. The exploits range from intercepting Soviet bombers off Iceland to defending Saudi Arabia in Gulf War One; from flying off the deck of Ark Royal to displays with the Red Arrows; and flying a desk in the UK MoD and NATO HQs.
David Hamilton was educated at George Heriots School in Edinburgh and gained his pilot's licence at seventeen. Joining the RAF straight from school, he qualified as a fighter pilot and flew Lightnings and F-4 Phantoms, including from the deck of HMS Ark Royal, as well as commanding a Tornado F3 squadron and air base. He supervised and flew with the Red Arrows. He held staff appointments in the MoD, NATO HQ and as air advisor to General Sir Peter de la Billiere after the First Gulf War, before taking early retirement and spending twelve years with industry on the Eurofighter project.
