Tornado Over the Tigris Recollections of a Fast Jet PilotDangerous Michael Napiers Tornado flying ranged from routine low flying in continental Europe and the UK to air combat maneuvering in Sardinia and the ultra realistic Red Flag exercises in the United States From a struggling first tourist to a respected four ship leader Napier became an instructor at the Tactical Weapons Unit at RAF Chivenor He later return If there was an award for the most laid back story teller then Michael Napier would get it for this book Very easy to read and so many laugh out loud moments its unbelievable simply one of the best accounts I've read about one mans journey through the RAF and leaves you wondering at times if its fact or fiction with some of the mishaps and stunts Nice selection of photos from the author and others taken at the time is included as you go through the book and this is a nice touch Even if your not a fan of aviation stories this is a very interesting book due to how its written and presented and I would happily recommend this book
