A boy takes his first FLYING lesson at just SEVEN years old

A seven-year-old boy who one day dreams of becoming an RAF pilot has taken his first flying lesson - and even flew the plane for a few seconds. Pint-sized Jacob Newson said it was one the 'best experiences' in his life when he took to the skies for the very first time after dad Andrew, 53, surprised him with the lesson. The little lad even took over the controls of the Piper PA-28 Cherokee and soared 3,000 feet into the air during the flight last Friday (April 16).
