Y3 Trip to Manchester Airport

Year 3 had a very exciting day visiting ManchesterAirport (despite the wet weather!). Children learnt about the inner workings of an aircraft on-board an Avro RJX—100, learnt lots of facts about Concorde and even boarded a DC10 and sat in the flight deck! The children also learnt about lots of different jobs at the airport.

“I learned that 20 concords were built and 14 were in flight in the UK and France.” (Philippe, Y3)

“I’ve never seen planes take off that close before!” (Poppy, Y3)

 “I saw Alpha Charlie which is one of the concords—it can travel at 1350mph!” (Aaron, Y3)
