A hardy crew from the No 2065 Biggleswade Air Cadet Squadron went to RAF Odiham earlier this month to have a look around a Chinook helicopter with the No 27 Squadron.
Ashley Austin, who is the civilian instructor of the squadron, said: “Most of the cadets had their first chance to go into a Chinook helicopter, and have a real good look around the inside of the main body and cockpit.
“Also, they got to have a look at some of the safety equipment that goes into a Chinook helicopter in case of emergencies.
“The squadron parades on Monday and Wednesday nights between 7pm and 9.30pm.
“Feel free to come down and see what we do.”
Every Wednesday is Walk-in Wednesday at the headquarters in Ivel Bury, which is an opportunity to find out how you can get involved in the squadron.
If you are aged between 12 and 17, and are interested in finding out more, you can come down and meet the team between 7pm and 9.30pm.
