Airport Visit

We visited Exeter International airport a few weeks ago and had a great time looking around.

The scouts were given an opportunity to learn about the process of booking in and boarding a plane and a behind the scenes view of the arrivals area of the airport. This was followed by a visit to the fire stations where the monitor sprayed some water and the scouts had a chance to climb through the cabin and up behihnd the water cannon.

This visit was finished by a trip to the control tower and radar room, where as darkness fell we watched and heard the last few flights of the evening land and saw an RAF helicopter finish its ferrying duties and land at an Army base for the night.
