The 16, 17 and 18 year olds have undertaken 12 months of Winter Skills and Survival Training as part of their preparation for the expedition, which will see them travel to the Arctic in the UK's only Catalina, a WW2 Sea Plane, which started its journey from Loch Lomond. The expedition will also raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund.
