I know it's hard to train before one can be qualified to perform, and I know some mistakes are acceptable, but those shown in the video are totally unacceptable for a public performance.
If you really wants to know, I don't have to try to know how hard they are cause I had been involved in far more greater demanding tasks for military ops and public performances than this, many of which were actual life and death situations, and we all had many months of trainings and rehearsals too, and yet, when mistakes were made during on the actual event, one simply have to answer for it and be responsible for it.
Check out my profile, I'm from the military (Air Force) and have been in service for 25 years already. I have been involved in helicopter operations and search and rescue was my one of my main responsibilities and roles, life saving task was my main job and I had been involved in many rescue operations, and involved in 5 years of fly pass of the state flag for NDPs. So I know what I'm talking about.
Nervousness can never be used as excuse for mistake made, all of us were sure to be nervous under such circumstances, but yet it's our own responsibilities to turn nervousness into strength and forces that drives to do our best for the actual event. Unfortunately, sometime, mistakes that we make can cause lives, so making mistake are never an option or excuse, when we out there to do our task, it's our responsibilities and profesionalism to ensure no mistake can be make at all. And if there any mistake made, we have to face it and accept the responsibility for it like a man.
And that's why we always drill so hard on trainings, cause it's exactly these trainings that will minimise any possible mistake during the actual event.
There were NDP Parade Commanders who had made mistake and called or miscalled a command, they were nervous too, and yet, they too had to face the consequences of their mistake.
If you are being put to go through what I went through for my training in the helicopter operations, you just may not even complete your first training.
