Visit to RAF Lyneham

20 Cadets from the Sqn visited RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire, home of the RAF’s Hercules Fleet on Thursday and Friday of the Feb half term.

They visited 30 Sqn and were given a guided tour of the new C130 J model Herc by two pilots, the Tactical Medical Wing and medics, UK Mobile Air Movements Sqn, 47 Sqn Air Dispatch RLC (an Army unit who prepare parachute loads) who showed some spectactular footage of when it all goes wrong! Air Traffic Control, Fire Section and others.

Cadets also gained work experience in the Engineering Section, Armoury, and with the Aircrew. Some cadets were also able to ‘fly’ on simulator missions.

In the evening the cadets went bowling and to Laser Quest, where we were joined by some Scouts who where younger and much better at getting ‘kills’!
