On Saturday my cadet sqaudron was lucky enough to get a trip around the UKs biggest airport London Heathrow! We visited the tower, a British Airways 747, the fire station and we drove a round the taxi way in a mini bus! :)
Wow you guys are really lucky to get detailed tours like this
That would be a wicked experience! Hopefully my squadron goes to my local airport, as it looks am amazing!
My dad works in the control tower so he put it together for my squadron :)
Great photos, very interesting to visit the towers.
He just said in the above post ;)
I just noticed it after I posted it ;D
What squadron are you? (207 Cranfield Represent)
I’m part of 261 squadron in the London and south east region:)
Think I might have tracked the OneWorld 744 on ADS-B. Registration: G-CIVI
Wow, amazing photos! Looked like a fun visit!
In one of the photos is G-BNLK which is an old British Airways 747. The BAA worker who showed us around said that it will be retired in 2 weeks :(
This looks awesome. Very lucky to go round EGLL as well!!
If only the CCF did experiences like this :/
Ah. It’s currently flying from Cape Town.
The OneWorld livery 747 is the one I was referring to.
Was this AFROTC? Or CAP. I am in both and our squadron hasn’t visited an operating airport.
I’m part of the air training corps which is part of the RAF.
Classic Brit Weather as well!
