Resource Group attend the Heathrow Airside & Engineering Day
On Saturday 15th June, Resource Group attended the Heathrow Airside and Engineering day.
The event took place in the Virgin Atlantic hangar, based at Heathrow. Families were able to visit displays by many airport organisations, as well as tour the aircraft based in the hangar and see a breath-taking display by the Heathrow Fire Service. They could also look at and sit in a huge array of specialist airport equipment, everything from Follow Me cars to giant snow ploughs. The police were displaying their vehicles old and new from the latest helicopter to a Morris Minor Panda car from the 60s. For the youngest children there was a steam locomotive and an array of bouncy castles and other attractions.
The day itself was a real success and we met lots of young children who we hoped to have inspired and raised the awareness of engineering opportunities.
