On the 28 th of April we arrived at R.A.F Linton on Ouse in Yorkshire , I only stayed till the Monday because I had S.A.Ts but it was still as much fun! When we arrived at Tait block the females and male were sent to their rooms to get ready and in our uniform.

Every day we marched down to the Sergeants mess to have our breakfast, lunch and dinner but some days we had packed lunches for when we went flying etc.
I was in A flight which was the flight that was going home early so we went flying first on the Friday at Church Fenton. This was my second time flying so we did aerobatic manoeuvres in the tutor. When we went shooting I thought that was really good, we did other activities too like we went swimming in a local pool where I passed my basic and intermediate swimming also we went to two museums which were pretty interesting. On Saturday night we all went bowling at the club and at the end whoever won got some prizes.

Sunday we did a walk in groups and that was fun but tiring because of all the activities before that day. Then Monday came all too fast and we went to water world in York and then after that when we got back to the block I had to be picked up to go, the camp went too fast I had so much fun there and I am pleased for the Flight Sergeant to who got the Tucano T1 flight because she worked really hard that week well-done!

RAF Linton-on-Ouse

One of the busiest training airfields in the RAF, Linton-on-Ouse has been used as a Bomber, Transport and Fighter airfield in its long and interesting history since it opened in 1937. Since 1957 the main role of the Station has been pilot training, initially with the Jet Provost, but now with the Tucano T1. No 1 Flying Training School operates 78 Tucano T1s, providing basic flying instruction. No 642 Volunteer Gliding School, equipped with Vigilant T1s is also based at Linton.
