'The British Aerospace Hawk: A Photographic Tribute' by Michael Leek includes more than 150 full colour photographs of the planes flying low level, sometimes just 100ft off the ground. As the photos were taken from remote mountainsides, they actually look down onto the Hawk MK1 jets as they speed past.
