Red Arrows – an illustrated talk by Phil Holt
The Red Arrows aerobatic team has won the hearts of a nation
and is renowned throughout the world, acting as ambassadors for
Great Britain and supporting UK industry by demonstrating the
capabilities of British equipment and expertise. Since their
creation in 1965, the Red Arrows have flown over 4,000 displays
in 52 countries.
Phil's illustrated presentation takes us through the events that
led to the creation of this exceptional team of pilots. He then
introduces the men and women in the famous red suits, who make
precision their profession, teamwork their science and
aerobatics their art form. He will bring some official Red
Arrows Merchandise for sale.
An Air Traffic Controller for almost 40 years, Phil served at
seven locations including Heathrow. He was a reservist in the
R.A.F., a flying instructor and involved in Maritime Air Region
operations; he can count among his flying achievements parachute
dropping and flying for the St John’s Ambulance air wing. He
continues as an active pilot and is a Flying Display Director,
involved with the show circuit for over 30 years.
