The world of Equestria has been the sight of many wars over the last twenty years. Each of these wars have given birth to heroes. Heroes who, through insurmountable odds, brought about victory for their allies and defeat to those who dared oppose their skill. They fought some of the most dangerous weapons ever to be constructed by pony kind to ensure the safety of their brothers in arms and future peace for the world. Revered as legends among their companions and demons among their enemies, they took to the skies of distant battlefields to fight impossible battles that will forever secure their place in the tomes of aerial warfare.
I have scoured the world in search of the truth behind these legendary pilots. I have spoken to their friends, and their rivals, and those who were inspired by them, in attempt to learn all I can about them. I have gone to their home nations and interviewed those who commanded them, to learn about the impossible feats they accomplished in the name of victory. Through my efforts, I feel that I have gotten to the heart of the three aces that I have researched. In my collections I will tell the tale of tragedy that is the Demon Lord and his unheard of feats. I will uncover the ponies behind the plane known as the Grim Reaper by its enemies and the Ribbon Fighter by all. I will let everyone know the truth behind the unsung war and its unsung heroes.
The first story that will be told is that of the Ribbon, and its roll in single hoofingly turning the tide of a war, and preventing the flames of hatred from scorching the skies. The plane and its pilot who flew through those shattered skies, leaving an echo like distant thunder.
This is Equestrian Skies: The Bearers of the Ribbon Insignia
