Cubs at Ulster Aviation Society

Cubs, as the final part of their Air Activities Badge, went on a trip to the Ulster Aviation Society in Long Kesh on Saturday.  They had the opportunity to see some restored aircraft, all with a connection to the old Long Kesh Airfield.  Many aircraft where still under restoration – including one that they have been working on for 20 years!  The entire collection is gathered and maintained by an enthusiastic group of volunteers and their enthusiasm was contagious.  The cubs also had an opportunity to see the recreated Cold War alarm and monitoring stations and had a demonstration of just how ready NI was for WW3!  The day was rounded off with a trip to Mcdonalds and sing songs on the big red bus (and the white one!)
