The morning was all plane sailing and guests enjoyed supporting a worthy cause while eating cake.

A new Enterprise scheme, to use the airport as host to important community issues, is taking flight and Helispeed at Hangar 3 put on the MacMillan event to raise awareness of the charity and also boost the profile of the airport.

The well-received event took place for people to proudly support the business community in aviation.

Hangar 42 Team baked a display of cakes and a patisserie selection, including a Macmillan cake.

Local businesses, including air ambulance, Babcocks Helicopters and Hangar 42, as well as individuals were present to support what is a much needed assistance in cancer care.

They all took time out to help give the profile wings while also enjoying the baking on offer.
