The cadets were fascinated to be able to see the BBC film crew in action. Cadet Breanne Richter of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron said, ”I just love the program and she's brilliant, when I found out Jessica was here I just had to get a photo with her. We had to wait some time for her to finish filming but I was amazed to see just how many people are involved in filming what will probably end up as a few seconds of the finished episode. I was so excited I don't know how I stayed quiet for so long. Thankfully Jessica came over to us as soon as she finished filming and we got our photo with her, how brilliant is that.”
