Air Cadet 75th Anniversary Extravaganza

Cadets and Staff from 1224 (Wharfedale) Squadron were recently involved in the impressive Air Cadets 75th Anniversary event at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell.

The event, taking place to mark 75 years since the Air Training Corps was formed during the Second World War, took place at the College Hall Officers Mess, and involved drill displays and musical entertainment, as well as flypasts from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Red Arrows!

1224 (Wharfedale) Squadron took part in several aspects of the event. Cadet Sergeants Ellie Cooper and Skye Donoghue had been part of a Drill & Ceremonial camp the week leading up to the event and displayed their skills with an impressive rifle drill display. Cadet Flight Sergeant Bailey Ryan and Max Franks were part of the Air Cadet Organisation National Marching Band, whose mesmerising performance was applauded by guests that included the new Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier and Group Captain Carol Vorderman, honorary ambassador for the Air Cadet Organisation.

Staff from 1224 also assisted with the National Concert Band camp in the week leading up to the event.

The evening ended with a spectacular fireworks display taking display over the College Hall Officers Mess.
