CWO Bates returns from the middle east

We are pleased to report that our CWO, Vici Bates has returned from her International Air Cadets Exchange visit to Israel. During the trip, she was able to experience Jewish life with an Israeli host family, visited various Israeli Air Force Bases and was able to take a look around their state of the art equipment and aircraft.

The IACE delegation travelled the length and breadth of Israel and visited sites of religious and historical importance, such as Jerusalem, Masada, the Golan Heights, as well as swimming in the Dead Sea, the Red Sea, and Mediterranean. As VIP's of the Israeli military, they experienced the finest Israeli delicacies.

CWO Bates is currently writing a full report which we will post shortly!
