The Talk

In May 2011 Graham climbed to the summit of Mount Everest after a two and a half month expedition. During this time Graham lost 2 and a half stones and saw things many die trying to see.

As a member of the Red Arrows from 2010 for three years (the maximum stint possible), Graham learned about the search for perfection. The Red Arrows is a seamless display of the world’s premier aerobatic display pilots, which at its best will leave you speechless. At the Red Arrows, advanced technologically is not a privilege provided, which means that teamwork needs to be flawless. Before each event an analysis of each flight is undertaken to mark areas for improvement. The constant search for perfection is what drives the greatest display team on Earth.
