Steve Davis was given a ‘magical’ experience when he was treated to a trip in a light aircraft with pilot Lovinia, whose children attend Westleaze Preschool.

He took off from Bristol Airport before flying above the school, where its students were ready to wave at him.

Mr Davis said: “I had been asked to keep my diary clear for the morning so I knew something was going on but never expected anything as exciting as this.

“It was a magical experience and one which I will never forget.

“It was amazing to fly over places I know so well, and seeing all the children and staff in a giant 50 made the surprise even more special.

“I am so grateful for everyone involved from our great school community.”
