Cadets rolled up their sleeves, got a bucket of water and some soap, and helped clean the squadron airplane on one of our warmer days in April. Regulations require that both the plane and van are washed at least once per year. Older cadets often use this opportunity to tech younger cadets about the various parts of the aircraft, so they avoid damaging sensitive parts of the plane.
