Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wing Air Cadets
18 Squadron visit
Cadets and Staff from 2412 (Bordon & District) Squadron visited 18 Squadron based at RAF Odiham on Monday evening. and were given VIP treatment from the Deputy Air Cadet Liaison Officer, Flight Sergeant Neale.
The evening started with an intersting look at 18 Squadron's history, current operations and the future of the Chinook. We then had a tour of the Mk2 Chinook (in photograph) which was going through the final stages of getting it ready to go back into operational service.
'It was such a great opportunity to get up close to such a great aircraft' said Cdt Drury.
A special thanks to Wing Warrant Officer McCarthy for organising the evening visit.
