I once shot a film about the Empire Test
Pilot's School, based at Boscombe Down in
Wiltshire and on one occasion went with
the director to get some shots from the
end of the runway as pilots carried out
'touch and go' manoeuvres on one engine.
Unfortunately, I'd turned down the offer of
ear defenders on the grounds that I
wouldn't be able to hear the director's
instructions. The Tornados came in at
almost zero feet over us, one a minute,
followed by the Red Arrows on a visit. The noise was unbelievable. I'd been pretty stupid -
the director couldn't talk to me anyway under those circumstances. I couldn't hear
anything for about an hour afterwards, and feared it was going to be permanent.
Thankfully it wasn't, but I'd learned a lesson, as next time I may not be so lucky. On that
day, I was also offered a flight in a Tornado to RAF Leuchars in Scotland, and presumably
back again. Was I interested? I think so, I said, quivering with excitement inside.
Preparations were being made when I was advised that the Min. of Defence had vetoed it
on the grounds of 'risk' - there had been a number of civilian deaths recently on RAF
jaunts, and the MoD weren't going to chance another (so it was their risk, not mine!). I
was a bit miffed at that.
