AN AIR Cadet from Bassingbourn barracks is preparing for the trip of a lifetime.

Flight Sergeant Martin Goddard, 18, of the 2484 (Bassingbourn) squadron is heading off to Nepal as part of a global exchange programme.

Based near Kathmandu, Martin will be learning about the Nepalese community, and working on local projects in the six months of his placement.

Following this he will be based in Brighton, completing the UK stint of the programme.
