    Beavers learn about Army flying

    4th Newbury Beavers recently visited the Museum of Army Flight in Middle Wallop - where Prince Harry learned to fly. While not quite ready for their first solo flight they did learn about the types of aircraft and helicopters that the Army use, and had a go at marshalling planes. All had a chance to sit in an Army Scout helicopter before getting their photo taken in front of the Beaver plane!
