Play / pause Pilots

  • Interview by: Jess Boydon


Was at jobs fair and they had an RAFs stand there

and I just happened to be chatting

to the guy on the stand.

I can't remember what rank he was,

but we just ended up blowing about aeroplanes

and he said well, you know,

"what are your career options?"

And I said, "I'm possibly looking at it and all see,

and the oil industry, and a few other things."

And, he said, "well what about the Air Force?"

I said, "well you know you've got to be tall,

blonde and mega intelligent and I'm not these."

He says, "well you've been to university, you've got degree.

Why don't you think about it?"

So I joined went to Cranwell,

Through the officers training stuff,

and then I realized quite quickly that they weren't

tall blonde mega intelligent

or even great at sports even half of them.

Very much like myself to be honest.

And, I thought, wow, you know actually

these guys aren't superhuman,

and I could definitely do this job.
