'I couldn't see the tank. I couldn't see it...someone was screaming over the radio. "Scream all you want, I still can't see it," I said to my pilot. The next explosion was so close it lifted my chest armour off my body in the shock wave. The noise brought me back to my awful reality. I looked out of the sight to see the shattered cockpit glass. The next one would be it and we knew it.' Lieutenant Commander James Newton survived and was awarded the Distingushed Flying Cross for his bravery. In a career that has seen him in action in Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone Northern Ireland and most recently Iraq, Newton is no stranger to being shot at. He has flown all the aircraft the Navy has and even ones it doesn't. Thrilling, fast-paced and an adrenaline-fuelled journey through a pilot's life, "Armed Action" is a fascinating insight into life in the air.
