ONE of the RAF's most famous squadrons made a flying to a Manchester primary school and treated children to sample what life is like in the cockpit.
A pilot and navigator from the historic 617 Squadron, the unit that provided the legendary Dambusters, popped in to the Church of England School of the Resurrection, in Beswick, to share stories of their time in Iraq with the pupils. They then returned to their Tornado fighter, which they had left at British Aerospace in Warton, near Preston, followed by two coaches packed with children, desperate to catch a glimpse of their heroes in action.
