The high-octane memoir of one of the UK's greatest fighter pilots of the modern era.
Commander Nathan Gray - an elite test pilot serving in the Fleet Air Arm's is currently the UK's top test pilot. He has completed 140 combat missions and is one of the most decorated British military aviators currently flying today - our country's very own Maverick. Hazard Spectrum is the story of his service flying in some of the world's harshest combat zones, flying the deadliest planes technology has so far created and coming out the other end in one piece. With almost two decades of combat experience, Nathan rose to public fame as millions of television viewers tuned in to the BBC series 'Britain's Biggest Warship'. We watched in awe as he trained for, and completed, the first take-off and landing of the world's current best fighter aircraft, the F35, on the flight deck of HMS Queen Elizabeth. Hazard Spectrum details how his career led to that point - his graduation from student to teacher, from the iconic Sea Harrier - flying ops in Helmand Province and going in pursuit of Osama Bin Laden - to the cutting-edge Stealth Fighter of the future, Nathan has left no segment of the hazard spectrum unexplored.
