Air cadets from the 272 Wisbech Squadron made sure their uniform was spotless, stood in formation and some received awards as they were formally inspected.
The wing commander, wing warrant officer and squadron leader attended the squadron for its annual formal inspection.
The evening began with wing commander Kelly and commanding officer Rose inspecting the cadets on parade.
The cadets were dressed smartly in their No 1 uniforms and were spoken to by the wing commander as he inspected each cadet about their enjoyment of being part of the cadets and what they had achieved.
Vanessa Simmonds, civilian instructor for the 272 (Wisbech) Squadron, said: "It was a great night of achievements."
At the end of the evening wing commander Kelly gave out awards to cadet Taylor and cadet Rance for achieving their pre Duke Of Edinburgh awards.
Cadet Mark Simmonds was also given an award for completing his bronze Duke Of Edinburgh award.
