Nigel Champness, Red Arrows pilot in the 1970s with Red 9 (1976) and Red 5 (1977) sent us in this great photo of when he met up with his old original jet, the exact one he used to fly as a Red Arrows pilot. The aeroplane is called a Foland Gnat.
Nigel is one of our great ambassadors of Bigatmo sunglasses. What better accolade than for a Red Arrows pilot to endorse them.
Nigel wrote in to us last week. “I am enjoying having a high quality pair of glasses, the first for years.
As I no longer fly, I am using them for sitting around a pool in the south of France right now! They would suit anybody who likes the aviator look, but also wants a lens that performs. Good luck with the business! ”
