Three cadets from the Wisbech 272 Squadron Air Cadets took to the sky as they had their first flight in a Grob Tutor aircraft with the 7 Air Experience Flight at RAF Cranwell.

They all donned a flying suit, parachute and helmet before their flight in the dual-controlled plane and all three had the opportunity to take the controls of the aircraft and fly it themselves.

A cadets spokesperson said: "The smiles when they landed said it all."
