Charity lets kids go on their first flights

Published: 31/01/2009

A HIGHLAND charity gave three underprivileged children the chance to go on their first flight at Inverness yesterday.

Dingwall-based charity Heartstone took the children, from Derby, Birmingham and Hastings, to the city’s airport for the experience of a lifetime with the Highland Flying Club.

The trio have been named as the charity’s first Festival of Flight ambassadors as part of a new photographic exhibition. The Festival of Flight features more than 300 images by Nick Sidle, telling the story of powered flight, including birds and the latest modern technology.
