As a teenager I remember the excitement of seeing the large formations of Jet aircraft flying over my house in Walthamstow East London. 6 Victors, 3 Vulcans escorted by Phantoms and Lightning’s. They passed over the crooked billet roundabout and straight onto fly up the mall and over Buckingham palace. It inspired me to become an air cadet.

I still feel the same excitement today and I’m still involved as a Civilian Instructor. The noise and smell will live with me forever Thank you.
