About the Show

Narrated by Ewan McGregor, this six-part series follows the highs and lows of seven pilots and five navigators on a gruelling six-month course learning how to fly the Tornado GR4 bomber - the RAF’s primary attack aircraft and a formidable plane. Capable of supersonic speeds yet best at low-level in darkness, this fast-jet is one of the most potent in the world today. With spectacular footage from inside the aircraft in flight and breath-taking aerial views of Scotland, this is an energetic and fascinating insight into the world of the RAF. Part 1 of 6.
