Blade Slap- A Year with the RAF Chinook Display Team


Have you ever wondered what it takes to fly the RAF's tandem-rotor heavy-lift helicopter? Ever thought about the amount of work that goes into preparing for the annual airshow display season? Throughout 2018, Tom Mercer has had unprecedented access to the UK Chinook Force and for the first time ever will take you behind the scenes of the Royal Air Force Chinook Display Team. Read all about the work that goes into the display work-up, the all-important Public Display Approval and key moments from across one of the team's busiest ever airshow seasons. As if that isn't enough, you'll get to see what daily life entails on an operational RAF Squadron. A project of this size has never been attempted with a frontline asset before, but thanks to the Royal Air Force, Joint Helicopter Command and RAF Odiham, Tom has been able to capture an insight into the RAF's centenary year in all its glory.
