Yesterday, Rosa, Molly, Lizzie, Ben, Aiden, and Freddie in Middle Fifth, were extremely lucky with weather conditions for their flying trip to Boscombe Down (military Camp).  The cadets flew with a RAF instructor pilot in a Grob G 115 for 45 minutes each, and once they were content were also given the controls themselves to fly. Most of them experienced loop the loops, barrel rolls and generally being upside-down in a plane. Weather conditions were absolutely perfect for their experience, and they even got to fly over Stonehenge for a bird’s-eye view.
