Push 500 Challenge
In support of local resident and former RAF Regiment Gunner, Mr Sean Allerton, Yorkshire UAS have been supporting his charity event ‘Push500′. Sean is attempting to cover 500 miles of various RAF airfields in the UK, in order to raise money for RAF Benevolent Fund and other charities of his choice.
On 4th Oct, 5 YUAS students took part in his event at RAF Scampton with the RAF Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. This involved one lap of the airfield with some of the pilots and groundcrew, followed by a tour of the Reds’ jets and various photographs. There are many of this type of event coming up in the future which the Squadron will be involved in with plans for visits to the Blades and a 24hr ‘push’ at Church Fenton.
