Over the weekend of 17th to 18th October 2021 eighty plus cadets and staff took part in a hike across Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, organised by the Wing Adventure Training Team to celebrate 80-year Anniversary of the issue of the Royal Warrant to form the Air Training Corps, which is part of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets.


Unusually, the weather was unseasonably dry and warm for the moors which made the challenge all the more pleasurable for the participants whose ages ranged from 12 with the youngest being Cadet Benjamin Goody of 781 (Newquay) Squadron to Warrant Officer Mike Taylor who at 79 years young and born when the Air Training Corps was in its second year.


Congratulations and thanks must be given to Squadron Leader George Blackbourn, Warrant Officer Steve Wildgoose and all the team who helped organise and run this event which has been the largest event this year for the Wing.
