Kenfig Hill Cadets Help at RIAT 2012


RIAT 2012___________________________________________________________________________________

Sgt Kevin Gould ATC accompanied three cadets from 2117(Kenfig Hill) Squadron ATC together with  cadets and staff from No.3 Welsh Wing to RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, to assist along with cadets from all over the country in setting up the Royal International Air Tattoo.  The Air Tattoo has become the world’s largest military air show. 

They arrived on the Thursday and started work in preparation for the main show over the coming weekend. It was hard work and long days but gave the cadets a unique opportunity to get close to the action and to meet not only cadets from around the country but also to meet pilots and aircrew from around the world, a surely unique opportunity.

Cadets who attended from Kenfig Hill were, Cdt Sgt Aston, Cdt Cpl Norris and Cdt Davies. The cadets were selected whilst there for different duties. Cdt Cpl Norris was selected for a working party that placed him in a fantastic position to meet many of the air crew and to get up close to the aircraft. He spent some time with the Black Eagles Korean display team and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Staff and cadets are looking forward to the next opportunity to be part of RIAT 2013.
