TEENS from Nantyglo and Blaina Air Cadets have been enjoying their first flight in a Royal Air Force Vigilant Glider.
The Cadets, aged 14 to 19 were flying with 634 Volunteer Gliding Squadron at MOD St. Athan.
Cadets Emma Rose, Sarah Rose, Nicole D'Arcy and Cadet Sergeant Josh Fish all flew in the local area and were able to take control of the aircraft under the guidance of a qualified pilot.
