Fowey With Love by Robert Tomlin.

Fowey With Love by Robert Tomlin.

The Royal Air Forces premier display team, the Red Arrows, performs dozens of displays in the UK and worldwide during a typical season and some display areas have more challenges and attractions for the team than perhaps others. One of the favourite venues is the little town of Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall, England, where the team demonstrate with awesome ability their skills and flying abilities. Amongst the best-loved of the manoeuvres is the Heart shape and this picture shows the Synchro pair scribing the heart in the sky at the end of the Fowey estuary, with the famous tug boat watching in the early evening sunshine.

The BAe Hawk  News of the first flight of the Hawk on 21 August 1974 was greeted with derision by Hunter pilots at the RAF's tactical weapons training unit. For understandably selfish reasons they were sceptical about the ability of the Hawk to replace the rugged, versatile and much-loved Hunter. "Forget Hawk - Fly Hunter" was one typical bumper sticker of the time but now 25 years on, such scepticism seems barely credible. With the arrival of the first Hawk aircraft at RAF Valley in November 1976, a new era of flying training began, and the first of thousands of fast-jet pilots discovered the joys of flying this truly thoroughbred aircraft.

Since then, the BAe Hawk has earned a reputation as the world's best advanced trainer and light strike aircraft. The basic design has been refined and improved in a series of variants ranging from multi-role light fighter to the US Navy's carrier trainer. But the one quality that sets the Hawk apart from other aircraft is handling characteristics. In the artist's own words, - "I had flown the Gnat and Hunter and in 1979 had just finished flying Canberra PR9s before transferring to the Jaguar, when I was given the opportunity to get some flying on the Hawk. It was a revelation. Here was an aircraft that was pure joy to fly, at low level it settled comfortably at 450 knots at around 150 feet and it could be flown into valleys under the most frightening weather safe in the knowledge that it could be turned around without losing airspeed almost in its own length. And at medium level? 1v1 combat in this aircraft is something else, - compared with the Hawk, the Jaguar is like flying an anvil".
