Cadets enjoy Bloodhound Project trip

PUBLISHED: 14:00 18 July 2015




Members of a Clevedon cadet squadron have visited a supersonic car project in Bristol.

The cadets joined 60 other members from groups across Bristol and Gloucestershire on a trip to the Bloodhound Project in Avonmouth, which is aiming to break the world land speed record next year.

The visit, organised by Flight Lieutenant Louise Arthur of 1446 (Clevedon) Squadron, gave cadets the chance to enjoy a presentation on the project’s history and take part in a team challenge to build a model car propelled by air. Guests also enjoyed a tour of the hangar and assembly line.

The Bloodhound will attempt to break the record in South Africa around April 2016.
