One of the blues gets a taste of being a member of the two-winged master race.

And it's neck to neck going into the start of the season, but we have a faller already,
Red 8 has pulled up at the water jump, but the rest of the runners are over and heading
down the straight.
But wait what's this, Red 4's horse appears to be trying to mount one
of the outsiders and has pulled up early, the stewards will be looking at this incident after
the race.
On we go and the pack is closing up, there seems to be some jostling at the front,
Red 5 appears to be in a tussel with Red 1 and looks to be out of it leaving Red 1 out in
front, but Red 1 can see his chances of advancing further rapidly disappearing.
It's going to be a close run race to the line and it could be anyone of the surviving
7 runners season..

Red 3 spots an open bar and he's off.

Had he opened his eyes Declan Donnelly may have enjoyed his experience day with the Red Arrows.

All the rumours of RAF Waddington and it turned out to be Blackpool.

Red 2 "Anyone got the hang of these new-fangled differential wings yet?"

Right, that's the funfair over with. Now let's go and get ready for the reason we're here, to represent the RAF in the British Open Ballroom Formation Championships.

The initial MFTS proposal to meet the 90% sim training target is seen to be a bit dubious

That's the '0' sorted. If all goes well with the '7' tomorrow then we'll be ready for Her Majesty's Jubilee fly past.

Chaps, I think that Red 1 has got the hots for the girl operating this thing. His head has been cranked 90° right since we started. Take her a stick of rock or a kiss me quick hat later on.

I’d have brought a bone dome but Red 4 was in it.

You can always spot a Red, they are often seated between two short planks.
