31 (Tower Hamlets) Squadron’s Cadet Warrant Officer Darrell Kovac was recently treated to a flight of a lifetime when he was treated to the privilege of a flight in a Royal Air Force Tornado GR4 aircraft flown by 31 Squadron RAF.

Darrell is the Royal Air Force Air Cadets’ Dacre Sword winner for 2018 being selected by Commandant Air Cadets as the top male cadet in the Corps. Following a medical, Darrell attended pre-flight training, safety briefings, joined other members of 31 Squadron to attend a mission briefing, before being strapped into the jet to enjoy his flight.
