I am Red 1, Team Leader of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows – AMA!
I’m Squadron Leader David Montenegro, Team Leader and pilot with the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. I lead nine fast-jets, performing aerobatics in displays around the world. This is my second year as Red 1, following operational tours with the Royal Air Force previously in my career, flying the Tornado aircraft. The Red Arrows are currently training hard and preparing for a busy season, which will see the team complete precision displays across the UK and overseas. We hope to inspire people through our teamwork and constant pursuit of excellence. This is my first AMA. Go for it!
EDIT: Hey reddit that was great fun with some brilliant questions. Look forward to doing another reddit in the very near future. For now, smoke off go.
