RAAF ROULETTES - MARYBOROUGH AIRPORT - SAT 28TH MAY 2016

The RAAF Roulettes visited Maryborough and invited our cadets to try out their flight simulator. The cadets had a great time trying on the flight gear and flying a jet in the sim. Some got to "fly" over Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. Others enjoyed being able to do roll overs etc. It was a great for our cadets to feel like they were flying a real jet and they all enjoyed experience. WIN News was also there and interviewed some of our cadets and our Officer Commanding. It should be aired Monday or Tuesday.
