About this title:

Synopsis: David Herriot served almost 40 years in the Royal Air Force as a navigator, first on the Buccaneer S2 and subsequently on the Tornado GR1. This volume recounts his early career operating the Buccaneer on three operational flying tours plus a tour as an instructor on the Operational Conversion Unit. With almost 2500 hours on an aircraft that was operated at high-speed, in all weathers and at ultra low-level, his task in the rear seat was a demanding one. But Herriot was more than just the guy in the back of a Buccaneer; he was, quite routinely, and often to the exasperation of his seniors, the life and soul of any party that was taking place either at home base or when overseas defending the flanks of NATO.

This is an epic adventure for the aviation enthusiast, particularly those with affection for the Blackburn Buccaneer, and is one that provides a great deal more than the usual introduction to a specific aircraft type and the people who flew it. Here the reader will find an absolute insight into life on a fast jet squadron, at work and mischievous play during the Cold War and they will be introduced to some of the modern Royal Air Force’s greatest characters.

About the Author: David Herriot served in the RAF for 38 years as a navigator and qualified weapons instructor both on the Buccaneer S2 and the Tornado GR1. Born and brought up in Glasgow, he now lives in West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire with his wife Jo. He is a keen amateur genealogist who has researched his family history back to the 17th Century in and around Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders. When not writing, he enjoys golf, the theatre, walking his Labrador and every minute spent with his five grandchildren.
