Experience first-hand what it was like to train as a fighter pilot in the RAF. Takes you right inside the RAF’s fast-jet pilot training stream in the 1990s. Beautifully illustrated with many rare and unpublished photographs from Tug Wilson’s private collection.
You would think that it would be easy to teach student pilots to fly and fight when you had been a fighter pilot yourself? Not so fast! Follow Tug Wilson as he became an instructor, mentor, coach and father-figure to his young and enthusiastic charges at the RAF Valley fighter school during the 1990s.
After surviving three years flying the RAF’s greatest and scariest fighter – the mighty McDonnell Douglas Phantom – Wilson tried his hand at teaching his flying skills, which he learned when stationed on the Cold War frontline.
Despite being more mature and responsible for teaching trainee pilots and navigators in the cockpit of a BAE Systems Hawk, he almost killed himself and at least one of his students.
