The group of youngsters, from the Castleford Air Cadets squadron, visited RAF Marham in Norfolk.

The cadets took part in a range of activities including shooting, a tour of the base and its aircraft.

“It has given me a really good feel for what life would be like on an active RAF station and in the Armed Forces.”
