Cadets from "A" Company had a fantastic day at RAF Lakenheath. The United States Air Force hosted the Cadets with a visit to the Fire Department, EOD and the 493rd Fighter Squadron.
Cadets used the virtual fire trainer, one of only two, in the United Kingdom and also did a number of command tasks, with the Fire Department.
The visit to EOD provided insight into what life is like in explosive ordance, including the chance to try out the remote controlled rover.
The 493rd Fighter Squadron, the cadets got up close to one of the F15C Aircraft and look and try on a "G" suit!

Big thanks to the 48th Fighter Wing for such a fantastic day!
