DISC ONE - THE RED ARROWS - 25 SPECTACULAR YEARS Here is a true celebration of 25 years spectacular achievement. The whole world knows the Royal Air Force s amazing aerobatic team, the Red Arrows. Now you are in the cockpit, hearing the leader s every command and sharing in every exciting manoeuvre. The cameras of veteran aerial photographer Arthur Gibson are your guide, first sky-high with the Gnats , the Red Arrows saucy little jet, and then in the powerful new generation Hawks flying today. Raymond Baxter introduces you to the team leaders, aviator legends themselves, from Lee Jones in 1965 to modern pilots such as Tom Miller. Now you have a lasting memento of the more than 2,000 daring intricate displays the team has performed before millions in 42 countries, and of the consummate skill of its pilots.

What an exciting decade it was, with the accomplishment of technological genius giving birth to innovation we now take for granted. Observe the dangers - the daring test pilots, ever willing to overcome the seemingly impossible and the bravery which cost the life of famed John Derry at Farnborough 52. Enjoy the Black Arrows (the forerunners of the Red Arrows) as they demonstrate the very meaning of precision during their giant aerobatics display.
