RAF C-17 Globemaster III Flights

c17_2c17_1This week 6 cadets and 3 staff travelled to RAF Brize Norton for a visit to 99 Squadron, Royal Air Force. They were privileged enough to get a flight aboard the C-17 Globemaster III, then enjoyed the day very much, an event that they will not be forgetting anytime soon. The flight lasted around 3 hours and all the cadets had a chance to experience a take-off and a landing from within the cockpit. Not only that but 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. 1406 would like to thank all the staff, both at 99 Squadron and at RAF Brize Norton for giving us such a great opportunity. The cadets will be talking about this day for years to come.
