Congratulations to former Brooke Weston Academy student Emma Turner who has achieved her ambition of becoming an officer in the RAF.
Emma, who is now Flt Sgt Turner, had a virtual passing out parade from RNAS Culdrose in Somerset, just before Christmas.
Her mum, Mel said: ‘Due to Covid we were unable to attend but the whole event was streamed live. Not only did Emma get her wings she also got two prizes; top observer on her course and best character/leadership on the course so we were incredibly proud!’
Emma is now a helicopter observer with 824 Squadron at RNAS Culdrose and she will now fly as part of a four strong crew on the Merlin Mk 2 helicopters, protecting aircraft carriers.
