We had an amazing day with the Red Arrows and I absolutely loved the experience of flying with their team.
To see first-hand how skilled the pilots are, and the similarities to the level of teamwork and precision that we need to get the best out of a Formula One car, was fascinating.
The loops and rolls in the jet are such an intense experience and I’ve got so much admiration for those guys and their unbelievable flying skills.
A big thank you to everyone at RAF Scampton for such an incredible experience, for allowing us to go behind the scenes of their practice display, and for making us feel so welcome.”
