Cpl Joe Goodman, Cpl Alfie Jaggard, and Cpl Kyle McLean were among those lucky enough to have this once-in-a-lifetime chance to fly in a Lynx, and all three thoroughly enjoyed it. Other cadets from Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing took part, including some from 115 (Peterborough) Sqn.

The cadets flew from RAF Wittering, and took a 20-minute journey around Rutland Water. They particularly enjoyed flying with the side door open.

Cpl Alfie Jaggard said, “It was such a great experience, something I will never forget.”
