Heathrow-Hub Hike

Category: AirTanker


At 17:00 yesterday, 20th March 2013, a group of six Royal Air Force (RAF) personnel from RAF Brize Norton and three Virgin Atlantic members, completed a 75 mile hike, over three days from Virgin Atlantic’s base at Heathrow to the AirTanker Hub at RAF Brize Norton. 

This exhausting challenge was undertaken in order to raise money and awareness or the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund and the Baby Snow Fairy Fund supporting military personnel and neo-natal intensive care units.

On reaching the AirTanker Hub one of our RAF engineers, Andrew Sayers commented: “It’s been a tiring experience but it is great to arrive home to such a welcome from the Voyager team and the amount we’ve raised [over £2500] will make a big difference to those supported by the RAFBF and the Baby Snow Fairy Fund.”
