Two Grimsby RAF Air Cadets have been praised for taking advantage of the opportunities open to them, after the pair leapt from an aircraft as part of a parachute course over the summer.
Cadet Sergeant Annabel Parry (aged 18), and Cadet Fletcher Burton (aged 17) spent a week at RAF Western-on-the-Green, Oxfordshire, in August.
The two cadets from 195 (Grimsby) Squadron undertook parachute training at the RAF base, as well as completing a swimming proficiency test, raft building exercises, canoeing and other activities ahead of the jump.
Flight Lieutenant Terance Shird, Officer Commanding 195 Squadron, said: “I cannot praise these cadets enough. They grabbed this opportunity with both hands.
“To parachute out of a plane at three and a half thousand feet in the air is an incredible achievement.”
Cadet Sergeant Parry said: “The camp was just awesome. I’m really happy that I got chosen to attend, and I can’t wait for the next summer camps now.”
Cadet Fletcher Burton said: “This was one of the best experiences of my life.
“I’d love to go back and do it again.”
