Once in a Lifetime Flight for Spalding Air Cadets

Recently six cadets and three members of staff visited to 99 Squadron,Royal Air Force, at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

The cadets were privileged to get a flight aboard one of 99 Squadron’s C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, which was hugely enjoyed by the cadets, an event that they will not be forgetting. 1406-img_1137

The flight lasted around three hours and all the cadets had a chance to experience a take-off and a landing from within the cockpit. Not only that, but, properly supervised and with safety lines, everyone had a chance to walk out on to the rear ramp whilst being 12,000ft above Wales.

The experience was a once in a lifetime opportunity for the cadets and they took many pictures and videos to remember the day.

The cadets and staff of 1406 (Spalding) Squadron, RAF Air Cadets, would like to thank all the staff, both at 99 Squadron and at RAF Brize Norton for giving them such a great opportunity. The cadets will be talking about this day for years to come.
