Prince Harry’s former army instructor was left “staggering” on description of one of the royal training flights.
In his memoir, Spare, the Duke of Sussex wrote that Sgt. I therefore argued that it was not. out in advance.
Michael says: even in shock.
“I could feel the left wing sinking, and I could feel a sickening sense of disorder and entropy.
“I stared at him. What’s the absolute? Is this an aborted suicide attempt? No, he said kindly. This was the next phase of my training.”
Michael, who ranks Harry one of the five greatest students of all time, claimed the description was “inaccurate.”
He told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: It is important to emphasize that there is nothing surprising in the cockpit.
“All sorties are thoroughly explained in advance in all aspects.
“The sortie is flown exactly as outlined. The only surprises are when emergencies are introduced later in the syllabus, not in the book.
“Engine failure is practiced before the first solo in case the student fails.”
The 57-year-old ex-soldier questioned Harry’s “dramatization” of military flights and suggested it may have rested on the prince’s ghostwriter, John Joseph Mohringer.
He added: I think it’s the result of ghostwriting. I never called him Lieutenant Welsh. he was an officer I called him Sir. ”
Despite his criticism of the book, Michael, who has served in the military for 22 years, has a lot of “respect” for Harry.
he said: He is a friend, a man who has always listened to me, and is someone I greatly admire. ”
