New, unread. 70 color, 40 b/w photos. This is the story of the FALCONS - Britain's Royal Air Force Parachute Display Team - one of the foremost exhibition teams in the world of aviation. As in, these guys jump out of airplanes for fun. Of course, they've turned it into an art after years of training and expertise. An anecdotal style and stunning photographs evoke the development, drama, skills, and spirit of free fall parachuting at the highest level. Falcons was written by Group Captain Peter Hearn.  As a pioneer of military free fall parachuting he founded and led the Falcons in 1961, and throughout his 30 years as a Parachute Jumping Instructor remained closely associated with the team.  To this personal experience he now brings the skills of an established author in the field of aviation and adventure fiction. ; 128 pages
