Matilda goes flying

Matilda visits the Ballarat Aero Club

by Elizabeth

airactivities2016-73cToday Matilda went to the Ballarat Aero Club to study planes and how they work. She had to learn the phonetic alphabet and the names of different parts of the plane. She even got to sit in the cockpit of a plane and turn the wheel to make the ailerons go up and down, which turns the plane.

Unfortunately today was a “no fly” day due to the weather so the actual flight has been rescheduled to next week.
