On the 10th of April we attended our first Easter Service as a squadron for many years. We would like to thank our own Padre and Trinity Church, Crossgates for hosting us and for making the evening so enjoyable. We would also like to thank the Civilian Committee along with members of the church for putting on teas and coffees for everyone afterwards. Well done to all of the readers on the evening and hopefully have many events like this in the future.
Radio Controlled Flying
Today, cadets and staff from South East Scotland Wing participated in introductory training for RC Flying. The event, held at RAF Kirknewton, gave the trainees the opportunity to have their preliminary flights with high wing trainer aircraft. Some of these aircraft have been built and maintained by cadets and staff from throughout South East Scotland Wing. Corporal Ewan Ramage (2180) showed off his skills and aircraft flying an ACRO - WOT and Flight Sergeant Calum Maxwell (1145) flew his Bixler 2 motor glider with an attached action camera. Many thanks to OC 661 VGS, Sqn Ldr Tom Gray, RAF Charitable Trust and staff and cadets from 1192, 1232, 1145, 1145DF, 571 and 2180 Squadrons.
