I was attending the RIAT at RAF Fairford in 2012 along with a friend by the name of Michael Murray. It was the first time either of us had seen it, and then it soared into the air whilst simultaneously destroying our ear drums. Not a good thing for two 15 year olds. Had to move my eyes away from the ‘tin triangle’ so I could prise Mike’s hands from his ears.

This will stay with me for the rest of my days.
