Barkingside man taken to heaven and back
A life-long plane enthusiast is on cloud nine after being offered the chance to fly a Boeing 747 – without leaving the ground.
Barkingside resident, Kelvin Lewis, 64, , tried out the multi-million pound flight simulator at the British Airways Flight Training School in Andover.
Mr Lewis won the experience in a competition by stairlift providers Stannah.
Mr Lewis said: “It really felt like the plane was in my hands. I still have a great love of planes and flying.”
