Sqn Ldr Ruth Shackleton’s spoke at Binbrook and District WI on her life and in particular her time as the team manager of the Red Arrows.

Ruth told how she went from air hostess to a cadet at RAF Cranwell, progressing over 16 years, including three war zones, to her ‘dream job’ with the Red Arrows.

She had everyone spellbound with her tales of life with the Arrows, including their informal private meeting with The Queen.

Ruth added a calender and a signed limited edition Red Arrows poster to the bumper raffle, with the proceeds of £88, plus a £12 donation, given to Ruth for her chosen charity, The RAF Association.
