Cadet Squadron 14

The patch, a rounded white trapezoid with a light blue border, shows the upper body and head of an aroused cobra rising from the lower left to the upper right corner. The snake?s head and prominent features, such as the scales on the head, body, tongue and eyes, are outlines in black. Its head is rust and gold; the body and border on the small head flanges are gold; the eyes and tongue are dark red. A simulates advanced manned strategic aircraft circles from right to left behind the cobra?s head, crossing in front of the left hood flange and middle of the planed outlines in black. The Arabic numeral "14," in light blue with white shading, sits against the right flange of the cobra. The cobra was chosen for its lightning speed and ability. The colors represent the four classes. The ever-increasing effectiveness of the Air Force is depicted by showing the aircraft eluding the blinding speed of the cobra. It serves as a reminder to beware of the speed and abilities of one?s opponents. This third patch was adopted by the squadron in August 1971.
