Easter Camp - RAF Cranwell

In late April, cadets from 361 (Gateshead) Squadron attended camp at RAF Cranwell in Nottinghamshire.
The cadets were joined on the Camp Photograph outside the historic College Hall Officers Mess by Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty, Commandant of the Air Cadet Organisation, who also took part in a gym session with the cadets later that day.
Cadets took part in a wide range of activities including flying in RAF King Air aircraft, visiting a range of section including Air Traffic Control, the Fire Section and the Police Flight as well as taking part in shooting (where Cadet Warrant Officer Beth Aisley qualified for a Regional marksman badge), sports and visiting the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby, the Imperial War Museum at Duxford and partaking in recreational activities including Go-Karting and 10-Pin Bowling.
