MPGS PULL PUMA HELICOPTER LENGTH OF RUNWAY IN SUPPORT OF FOOTSTEPS FOUNDATION

On Friday 15th June 2018, our brilliant Military Provost Guard Service (MPGS) pulled a Puma helicopter the length of our 1.8km runway to raise money for the Footsteps Foundation, a local charity that receive no government funding. Working together in a 10 man team, they successfully completed the challenge in an impressive 22 minutes!
