“Just about the best way - bar joining the RAF and actually winning a place in a coveted unit - to share the highs of precision flying with flair… several sequences should have your toes curling” - The Daily Mail
The Red Arrows are an internationally recognised symbol of the excellence and expertise of the Royal Air Force. The members of this exclusive team are ambassadors for the RAF and the United Kingdom, bringing thrills and excitement to more than 4,000 displays in more than 50 countries during the more than four decade history of the Red Arrows.
Rolling in the Sky - The Red Arrows, never previously available on DVD, was made during 1990 and provides a unique visual record of what it is like to experience a Red Arrows display from outside and, notably, inside the cockpit.
Every twist, turn and loop of the highly acclaimed 1990 display sequence is featured in fabulous footage shot in the clear blue skies over Cyprus, where the team perfected their awesome skills during the spring.
This is a perfect record of every magnificent manoeuvre, with on-board cameras capturing the view of the highly trained pilots as they undertake the tightest of formations - including truly breathtaking footage of a head-on ‘crossover’, where the closing speed of the aircraft reaches more than 750mph!
Your guide is Squadron Leader Andy Stewart, the then Red Arrows team manager providing detailed and fascinating commentary throughout.
