TUI Airways passengers who notice coloured smoke streaming past the windows needn’t be worried; it probably means first officer Mike Bowden is on board.
Bowden is a former Red Arrows pilot, though he won’t be around TUI this summer as he has temporarily rejoined the squadron to perform in aerobatic displays for one last time.
The airline released him from his flying duties to step in for Red 3, who was injured playing football ahead of the season.
Bowden, 38, joined the RAF in 2002 and undertook various flying duties including four seasons with the renowned aerobatic team. He flew for the RAF for the final time last October, and then joined TUI.
