Market Rasen Air Cadets travelled to Cranwell for the RAF College Flying Club Annual Fly-in, where they joined cadets from Newark and Chesterfield to assist at the event.

Their role was to help generally with the running of the event and in particular escort visiting aircrew to their aircraft.

As well as helping with the administration, the cadets managed to see a variety of visiting aircraft up close and got to sit in the cockpit of a Spitfire, which made their day.
