On 16 February 2020, the Basic Movements Training (BMT) course held their Graduation ceremony in the Warrant Officers and Sergeants Mess at RAF Brize Norton. This was the culmination of ten months intensive Movements trade training and marked the end of their phase two course and the beginning of life on the Squadron’s Operational Flights.
I had always dreamed of going skiing and it took until I was 52 to turn that into a reality. Growing up as a child in a tower block in London, the closest I got to skiing was watching “Ski Sunday” on our black and white TV. So, when the Squadron organized a skiing expedition to Austria, I jumped at the chance to go.
A remarkable achievement has been made by three members of 4624 Squadron based at RAF Brize Norton. Between them they have accumulated more than 105 years’ continuous service; longer than the RAF has existed.
