1407 (Newton Aycliffe) Squadron Air Cadets have hit the new year running with an excellent set of results at Durham and Northumberland Wing's Inter Squadron X-country. It was a cold a wet day, making for muddy conditions underfoot. Our cadets battled through though and, with some squadron spirit and alot of determination, competed well. Strong performances were given by every cadet who ran. Several of our cadets have made it through to the next round of the competiton, where they will represent the Wing.
At the end of the event, our Under 15 Boys finished 3rd and our Under 17 Men came in a stupendous 1st place. Overall 1407 Squadron came 3rd.
All of the cadets had a fun day despite the weather, with some interesting choices of clothing. All of the staff are very proud of the cadets' achievements and were pleased with their excellent behaviour at the event. We hope these successes continue throughout the new year and that cadets continue to participate in the wide ranges of activities on offer.
