Four Cadets from 1015 (Horsham) Air Cadets had the pleasure of attending a cadet muster at RAF Benson last month, with over 700 others from across the South East . At the event, 1015 Sqn cadets got to personally speak to many high ranking RAF Officers, including the Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty, Commandant Air Cadets, and Air Vice-Marshal James, the Air Officer Commanding No 22 (Training) Group. The four cadets spent quite a while talking to the officers gaining an insight into the running of the RAF and the ACO.
The cadets also had the chance to have a look around various pieces of military equipment, including the RAFs Chinook, Tutor, Puma, as well as the Army’s CVR(T), HMG, GPMG, Mortar and Grenade Machine Gun.
The day was topped of with a flight in an RAF Chinook, where the aircraft carried out many aerobatic manoeuvres, with the rear cargo ramp open, making for a very enjoyable and exciting flight, and a fitting end to an excellent day.
