The Nuneaton based Royal Air Force Air Cadet, Senior Aircraft Recognition team scored a well-deserved first place in this year’s Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing Aircraft Recognition competition.
The result came as a bit of a surprise to the team when they received the news. Close inspection of the trophy that has been awarded annually since 1957 revealed that 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron had never won it before, thus making this year’s competition win a massive First in more than one respect.
Officer Commanding 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron Flight Lieutenant Paul Hincks said, “It’s always nice when the Squadron manages to come up with a fist in anything, however, I didn’t realise that we had waited so long for this one. This trophy has been in use since 1957, and contrary to popular belief, I wasn’t even born then and that’s saying something about how long the Squadron has been after this trophy. All I can say is that our team really must know their aircraft and for that I and every member of the Squadron since 1957 congratulate you for a well-deserved First.
