Cadets see the RAF


Cadets have just returned from an action packed week at RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland, home of the Tornado GR4 Bomber Force. Together with cadets from Elm Park 21 of our cadets experienced a week of life with the RAF, with all cadets being able to get up close to a Tornado, live fire the No8 and L98 rifles, take part in section visits to various units on the base, such as the RAF Regiment, Air Traffic Control, Fire Section, and Aircraft Maintence Flight. In addition they had the opportunity to fly in a Search and Rescue Sea King, competled a nerve testing high ropes course and one cadet managed to set fire to his socks whilst ironong them!

Cdt Mullings said “It was a great experience. We done loads of activities that I wouldn’t have dreamed of doing when I joined. I was supprised that they managed to fit all of it into 1 week. It was a once in a lifetime expeience and I would love to go again. The highlight of the week was definatly getting a flight in the Sea King. The Tornado GR4 were really loud you could hardly hear the L98 A2 whilst firing it!”
