The UK has some of the most dramatic landscapes for RAF, RN, British Army, USAF and NATO pilots to train in the important skill of low flying. It also offers splendid opportunities for photography of close-up dramatic shots taken from usually remote hillsides and mountains. Pilots training for operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and other war zones learn their skills flying through the valleys of the UK, sometimes at near subsonic speed. In a low level environment aircrew are at work; sorties are flown as part of an intensive training schedule or to hone already developed skills. Low level flying is not for the benefit of spectators. But for those prepared for sometimes long, cold days on hillsides the opportunities are unique, as nowhere else in the world is it possible to photograph low flying military aircraft. None of the photographs in this amazing book were staged. This is the first book to be published anywhere on the subject of military low flying.
