After appropriate briefing by the simulator project team, Sir William ‘flew’ a representative sortie and thereafter unveiled a plaque marking the occasion. Clearly impressed by the realism of the facility he returned for a second sortie during the afternoon.

Further details will be promulgated as and when they occur, although it is unlikely that we shall be ready for general visitor use before October this year.
