3 cadets got to perform a Viking raid on Sunday

This was at a Volunteering Gliding School (VGS) run by the Royal Air Force. Really cold to start with but amazing clear skies meant they each had a couple of launches, plus a bit of stick time.

The Viking in question is the Viking T1 (G103 Twin II). Viking is the RAF aircraft name, T is the RAF designation for a Trainer, and 1 designates it as Mk 1. The Viking T1 is a high performance two-seater sailplane made by Grob Aircraft. The cadets in question are single seaters, high maintenance young people, aged 13+. They seem to require mid-drive fueling (Gregs, McDonald's etc) and seem to be able to consume lots of food without putting on weight.
