Watch the world's smallest business jet (worth £1.7m) take to the skies

The world’s smallest commercial jet has taken to the skies for the first time and is attracting interest from all over the world – including reportedly from Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.

Pilot Wieslaw Cena tested the five-seat Flaris LAR 1 at the Zielona Gora Airport near the town of Babimost in south east Poland.

The small jet only weighs 700KG and is powered by a single Williams FJ33-5A turbofan engine.
