The RAF Section were offered an opportunity to take part in a truly unique event this year – Blue Peter were raising money for Red Nose Day with the Red Arrows and filming at RAF Cranwell, and we were invited! Eleven RAF Cadets donned their best blues and travelled up with Mr Michalak to take part in the day that would see numerous flypasts by the Red Arrows with Helen Skelton in the back of one of the Hawk aircraft.
As one of only five CCF units there, the cadets took part in teambuilding exercises outside of the College Hall Officers’ Mess before taking part in a parade and watching a display from the Red Arrows. CWO Peck was fortunate enough to be filmed as he met Helen Skelton and we look forward to his television debut!
The event will be televised as part of Comic Relief on the 16 March 2013 and on a Blue Peter programme in the near future in addition.
