The other day when I went to see Top Gun Maverick it was a special showing for cadets and staff of Kent Wing ATC. We were invited and so I took some cadets. Being in a theatre with other like minded people was brilliant as we watched the film. But, the best bit was that before the film we had a personal message from Tom Cruise. Now, I’m involved with the Combined Cadet Force and traditionally they are based at private schools although my school has been state run since just after the second world war [not sure if that should be capitalised!]. Our cadets were the only CCF cadets there but we are still part of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets and are based in Kent. Although our direct command chain doesn’t quite follow the Wing structure it was still great to get this message.
This afternoon cadets, staff and from across Kent Wing went to a private screening of Top Gun Maverick at Silver Screen Cinema Folkestone.— 354 (Dover) Squadron (@354Dover) May 28, 2022
There was a little message from the main man himself @TomCruise
A fantastic film and a great opportunity for the cadets. pic.twitter.com/a7me1LvKXv
