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.”
