Tom entered RAF College Cranwell in 1961, he gained his RAF wings in 1963. His first posting was to No 16 squadron flying the Canberra. Its role as a light bomber squadron was primarily nuclear strike, with a secondary role of conventional ground attack by day and night. 16 Squadron was deployed Kuantan, Malaya. In July 1966 and on loan to the Senior Service, Tom reported to RNAS Lossiemouth for a swept wing conversion course on the Hunter before starting the Buccaneer Operational Flying Course. An excellent book. One I could not put down.

After a spell at the RAF Staff College, Tom became staff officer responsible for all aspects of fast jet advanced flying training on the Hawk at Valley and multi engine advanced flying training at Finningley. In 1983, selected to command 237 OCU, again flying the Buccaneer at Lossiemouth.

I flew with Tom for several years during my time on CUAS. If you then divide 14,600 by 8000 (to give you days per flying hour - as opposed to flying hours per day!!!) then you get . 25. He is a total gent and one of the most experienced aviators I've ever had the pleasure of being instructed by. Furthermore, he is capable of spinning a dit with the best of them, especially after a glass or two of the Macallans.

The author gives an "up close and personal" perspective of what it is like to be a military pilot, performing his routine operational duties on a day-to-day basis, during a period where the world was not really at war, but where hot spots intermittently erupted. He manages to keep the general reader's interest by not being too technical, even though he is telling tales that his peers, as well as military history readers like myself, will find both interesting and entertaining.
Blacknight
Well written, maintains chronological order, and explains side comments (especially if you've read the "Into the Blue" books).

An interesting view inside the RAF, and a glimpse into the demise of the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm, and 'conventional'carrier operations.

If you like military aviation, you'll enjoy this easy read.

Interesting book, many opinions similar to late Capt Eric Brown. Highly recommend his books and this is in the same class.
