Two Sherborne Boys enjoy flight with the Royal Navy
Simon Wrey (L6f) and Charlie Hensher (L6a) represented the School's CCF when they attended an Air Experience Day with the Royal Navy's 727 Air Squadron at RNAS Yeovilton in November 2009. The visit was part of activities organised by the Royal Navy's 'Fly 100' centenary celebrations.
The boys made the most of the rare opportunity for a civilian to fly a training aircraft called a Grob 115e. "Our instructor carried out aerobatic manoeuvres including loops and barrel rolls and we were able to take the controls during the flight. We flew over the School which was amazing to see from the air. It was a pretty intensive day but great fun and we came away really impressed by the Fleet Air Arm." says Simon.
Charlie is a member of the Royal Marines section of the CCF and is keen to join the Royal Marines as a Commando Surgeon.
