Air Cadets from five Squadrons of Trent Wing were treated to a rare tour into RAF Air Combat Power Visit (ACPV) at RAF Coningsby, the first time in five years any cadets have been allowed to visit this annual event, which until last year took place at RAF Waddington.
The Cadets where given a very special tour of the event, where they got see first-hand the Typhoon, E-3D Sentry AEW1, Tornado GR4, Hercules C130-J, CH-47 Boeing Chinook amongst others. What was of special interest was Atlas A400M as they were the first cadets to see this new aircraft in Lincolnshire as it was only delivered to the RAF under a year ago.
In charge of the tour was Squadron Leader Andy Robson, who also did an informal question and answer session with all the cadets. Questions ranged from where he had served to if he still enjoyed being in the RAF; all of which were answered in an informative yet casual way.
