Article posted: Jun 10, 2015 by sl6

The latest intake of cadets at 422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadets recently spent the day at RAF Museum Cosford.

The trip; arranged by Commanding Officer, Flight Lieutenant Kev Ritchie RAFVRT, allowed the cadets to learn all about the history of the Royal Air Force from its formation on the 1st April 1918 up until the present day.

The cadets were all tasked individually to learn a fact about the Royal Air Force as they made their way through the various hangars and exhibitions at the museum. They even had the chance to meet up with the Corby Branch of the Royal Air Forces Association who were at the museum for the day.

Flight Lieutenant Kev Ritchie RAFVRT said, “Visits like these are essential to the cadets training and gives them a greater knowledge of our parent service. It was also great to meet with our local RAFA branch who could share their experiences of the Royal Air Force with the cadets”.
