An Apache helicopter flew into Stonyhurst College last week, giving the Combined Cadets Corps the opportunity to view the aircraft at close range.

Former Stonyhurst pupil Lt Col Paul Hayhurst AAC and Capt Will Francis AAC visited in their state-of-the-art military machine.

Lt Col Hayhurst gave a talk about the aircraft and the role of the Army Air Corps, then it was time for cadets to view the helicopter, with a couple of the lucky ones able to sit in the cockpit.

The pilots then gave an informal display for the prep school pupils and staff.
