Red 10 Passes the Baton!
Published: 10 Sep 2017
Scampton Airshow's media team spoke to Sqn Ldr Mike Ling immediately after his final UK commentary as Red 10 and an unofficial 'handing of the baton' to his replacement, Sqn Ldr Adam Collins.
"I'm still buzzing - I really enjoyed that. It was a great way to finish off the UK season at our home base, I'm really chuffed.
"I'm immensely proud of my six years as commentator - in fact I'm proud to wake up each day and put the red suit on and go and represent the Royal Air Force. What the British public think about the team is so nice and we know we have a lot of support and I'm very grateful to them, my colleagues and my family with putting up with me!"
Mike is now off to "fly a desk" at RAF Cranwell - we all wish him well for the future.
