Cadet visit to EGLL!

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! :)imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

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 :(

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!
