BA 777 Captain Catherine Burton and private pilot Kanchana Gamage flew into Mill Mead Primary in Hertford for another school visit today! The morning took off with a workshop for Year 5s learning all about how aeroplanes fly, the flights of Amelia Earhart, Amy Johnson and the GB to Oz flight by Tracey Curtis-Taylor. Children also learnt much about Boeing aeroplanes and how jet engines work. The visit ended with children making and flying spectacular paper airplanes.
'We really enjoyed the morning! It was really great to hear about how planes fly - we really liked going to the front and demonstrating and also seeing the piece of paper showing how lift works!'
