  • "A true credit to the RAF, very informative and engaging."
  • "Every part of it was excellent. All the personnel on duty were fun, approachable, helpful and informative. Nothing was too much trouble and I would have thought this would all have been an excellent recruiting tool."
  • "The RAF crews on duty were great and their interaction with the public was exceptional. I witnessed a group of Help the Heroes supporters ask a pilot what he flew and if they could have a photograph with him. Both he and his co-pilot then promptly said "Come with us" and they walked a long way back to their Tornado, took them under the barrier and grouped them all together for a great few shots with them all and the aircraft. Sheer class."
