There were occasions when the cadets found themselves looking down their noses at the RAF. I remember the occasion when the CO of 612 was trying to get the Benson Staish solo on the Venture. As the aircraft dropped out of the sky yet again to bounce its way down the runway a watching cadet was heard to say "How the hell did he ever lead the Red Arrows?".
That Staish never went solo on the VGS but a later one did and became a member of staff on 612.
