I fired an L96 sniper rifle, got a ride in an AS90 and drove a 14-ton lorry with lifting gear.

I was going to join the army for real, but then decided it wasn't for me, full time at least. I've not joined the UOTC, so I need to take the long way round if I change my mind.

I like the airforce. I'm going to join the airforce. If they let me in. So then if everything goes well I'll be a F-18 pilot in, umm, 7 years maybe?
