No 40 (Howick) Squadron, Air Training Corps
Over the weekend cadets from 40 SQN and No. 5 Squadron, Air Training Corps went tramping at the Cape Brett Track in the Bay of Islands. It was long and challenging with us walking more than 16km over 8.5 hours in a single day but the views were worth it. Cadets got to sleep at the lighthouse keeper's cottage, go snorkelling and swimming, get a boat tour of the area and learn about its history, and see some marine wildlife (including an 8ft stingray). Can't wait to do more soon. ... See MoreSee Less
