This trip has been a little while in the planning as we have been waiting for our driver to be available and for him to get a minibus for the group - a big thank you to Andy WG for giving up his time to make it happen.
12 men departed the KIM Hub at 10am armed with packed lunches and a smile. We made it to RAF Cosford just in time for our tour to start at 12.
And what a tour! Our guide as Geoff and he took us through the Cold War, Test Flight and WW2 museums over 3 hours. The history was amazing to see.
All the men enjoyed the trip, everyone was taking photos and asking questions about the aircraft.
The men were in good spirits on the way home and discussed how getting out (like this) had helped them with their anxiety and the feeling of being included in society. One even said he didn't think he could have done something like this just a few weeks ago.
