Air Vice Marshal Byford said: “It is a great honour to be back at RAF College Cranwell, some 30 years after my own graduation, and to be the reviewing officer for the 5th modularised initial officer training course.
“It marks the next step in the journey for graduating officers, their families and friends, and the college staff, and they should feel enormous pride in their achievements. Congratulations to all and good luck on your incredible journey.”
