More than 600 cadets took part in the Trent Wing RAF Air Cadets Competition at RAF Digby, competing in various disciplines to win a coveted trophy.
The Cadets of Trent Wing come from across Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

This year’s competitions included first aid, media, aircraft recognition, aircraft modelling and shooting. In addition, the competition saw the return of the tent-erecting competition and also the introduction of the climbing wall and leadership exercises.

The event included a fly-past by a Spitfire and the mighty Vulcan XH558. By a kind request, the crew changed their planned route for their V-Force tour to include a flypast of the Field Day, before continuing to display at RAF Waddington.

The trophy was won by 331 (Chesterfield) Squadron.
