I joined the Royal Air Force on October 1988 straight from school and was enrolled at RAF Swinderby for my basic training. After passing out of the seven week Basic Recruit training course I moved to Defence College of Aeronautical Engineering, Cosford, which is where I completed my trade training course to become a Weapons Technician. Whilst at Cosford I represented the station in various martial arts and really enjoyed the compulsory PT lessons we had during the course.
I trained and passed all my qualifications as a weapons technician in cosford which gave me the knowledge I needed for maintaining aircraft ejector seat systems, load arms and explosives on various raf aircraft systems and also maintain carriage and release systems.
After 15 months trade training I was posted to 56(R)Squadron at RAF Coningsby. This proved to be a very busy flight line as it was the Tornado F3 OCU (Operational Conversion Unit) where the RAF train their pilots and navigators to fly fast jets. I was deployed to the Gulf conflict and did three tours in the Gulf, and was on detachment several times with the squadron to Denmark, Germany and Lossiemouth.
