Cadets get to design Red 1’s flying helmet for 75th anniversary celebrations.
AIR Cadets are being asked to design the flying helmet worn by the Team Leader of the Red Arrows, to mark their organisation’s 75th anniversary. The winning sketch will be applied to a real helmet, worn by Red 1 and flown in a display by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team. The competition is being held to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the RAF Air Cadets in 2016. Once brought to life, the successful artwork design will be seen on a helmet worn by Squadron Leader David Montenegro, Red 1 and Team Leader of the Red Arrows. It is hoped he will wear the helmet for a display at the Royal International Air Tattoo, being staged in July.
