Market Rasen Air Cadets got the chance to witness the RAF at work when they visited Coningsby recently.

While there, the cadets managed to take a look at the Air Traffic Control Tower and see at first hand how the airfield and sky is operated.

They also visited 11 and 41 Squadrons to take a close look at the Tornado and Typhoon aircraft operated by the units.

Some of them were even lucky enough to sit in the cockpit of the aircraft - not an everyday occurrence.

For more information on the cadets, email oc.2292@aircadets.org or call Flt Lt Dave Smith on 01507 606397.
