Don’t forget: Air Hostess, NOT Trolley-dolly…

17 March 2013

Sixteen of the Cubs and Scouts had an excellent day out to the Manchester Airport Runway Visitor Centre today (Sunday 17th March 2013) – partly going towards the Air Activity badge.

Air Activities Activity Badge

Highlights included a visit on-board the MC DC-10 and its flight deck, getting up-close to Concorde and going on-board the British made Trident. We were even lucky enough to see the Airbus A380 both take off and land, en route to Dubai. Bob, our guide, told us all about how an airport works – from the drug sniffing dogs to the team whose job it is to scare birds away so that they don’t get sucked into the jet engines.

The only thing we didn’t see were Trolley-dolly’s, unfortunately…but here are a few pictures from the trip anyway:
