Twelve air cadets and five staff members from 999 (Dunmow & District) Squadron visited two of the remaining Vulcan bombers – one at Newark Air Museum and the other at Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield.

The cadets were told all about the plane’s cockpit and had a tour of a Wessex helicopter and a Draken fighter jet.

At the airport, the cadets visited the Vulcan To The Sky Trust, which maintains and displays the last flying Vulcan.

The group was also given a talk about the Vulcan bomber, ­including its historical importance during the Falklands War and the ongoing maintenance challenges faced by the trust volunteers.
