Red Arrow Visit – RAF Scampton

redsProvided by Cadet Shawna Carrott (Age 14)

Eleven cadets from 1406 squadron ATC (Spalding) went to see the Red Arrows on Wednesday 26th August 2015 at RAF Scampton. We got to sit inside the training Red Arrow, which doesn’t go up into the air till needed. It also had all the safety guards on so we could take our phones in to the plane and take photos of the aircraft. They showed us around the cockpit and where the coloured dye comes from, before we went outside to watch the pilots come out and get into their planes, do the pre-flight checks, then we saw the Red Arrows form up and take off. Once the Red Arrows went, we went back into the hanger and had a little look around in and took some more photos.

Cadet Corporal Standford said, “Going to visit RAF Scampton to see the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team – The Red Arrows was an amazing experience for me, as I’ve never seen them up close before. It was quite breath-taking to know all the facts about the team, and the noise when they took off was immense!”
