Schoolchildren from The Misbourne were surprised by a former student and Navy officer, who dropped in to the school in his helicopter.

Lieutenant Ian ‘Benny’ Bennett, who left the Great Missenden school in 2001, landed the aircraft in the school field in front of the pupils who had assembled for what they thought was a fire drill.

He invited Sixth Form students and younger pupils with aspirations to join the armed forces to climb aboard and explore the Merlin Mk 2 aircraft.

Teacher Mr Clegg described it as a ‘very exciting and inspiring day for everyone’.
