This is the remarkable story of how a small airline was born.
A story about how it grew and survived amongst larger airlines operating the fast-emerging, numerous wide-body jets - a boom time for commercial aviation - on a borrowed £15,000.
A unique company, where overseas offices were kept open even in war zones, despite bullets flying outside the door, and through coups and other civil unrest; and, along the way, despite tragedy and many set-backs, it was able to forge strong links with the communities it still serves, to kick-start a major charitable project and support others by shipping their goods at little or no cost.
Perseverance and long hours working through endless ups and downs have kept freight and people flying. It is very much a story of innovation, and is written not only to place on record its history but also as a tribute to al those, past and present, whose efforts working for Redcoat contributed to its longevity.
