Following the individual event awards the moment arrived when the Top Three positions were announced. In Third place was 863 (Thurston) Sqn. Second place went to our training buddies and close rivals 432 (Woodbridge) Sqn, and after a tense pause from the Wing Commander Miller, Officer Commanding Norfolk and Suffolk Wing, first place went to 356 (Felixstowe) Squadron. Twenty years since they last one it! The result of first and second is a reversal of last year.

 Flying Officer Andrew Garrett – Officer Commanding 356 (Felixstowe) Sqn was overjoyed at the final result. ‘The team delivered. They set themselves a target on what they expected to achieve, and they delivered it. It’s going to cost me a fortune! The team have shown determination and enthusiasm, worked well together, and in doing so, have helped to secure first place in this weekend of non-stop activities. I have been at the Sqn for 5 years, and I have watched them move up the standings every year, and this is the pinnacle. I would like to say a big well done to the cadets who competed in this event, the staff who made it happen and especially to 432 Sqn, our training partners, who were worthy runners up.’
