From 1989-1991, David Greenway was Deputy Captain of The Queen’s Flight and was responsible for planning the flying undertaken by members of the Royal Family. He also accompanied all members of the family, both in the air and on the ground, and was able to see how they worked at first hand. He spent most of his time with HRH The Princess of Wales. His talk is an affectionate look at the life he led.
