March air cadet enjoyed international exchange camp in Germany

A MARCH air cadet joined a small group of lucky recruits who were chosen to join an international exchange camp in Germany.

Flt Sgt Alex Ogden from the March 1220 Squadron spent two weeks at the International Air Cadet Exchange camp which bought together cadets from across the world.

Cadets visited many German cities and famous landmarks while also getting the opportunity to fly through the Bavarian Mountains.

Flt Sgt Ogden said: “It was amazing going to a country which I knew very little about and coming back knowing so much.

“It was great to meet people from so many countries who have one thing in common - being an Air Cadet. It was one of the best trips I’ve ever been on.”
