The headteacher of Northleaze Primary School in Long Ashton was given a birthday surprise when he got to fly over the school and see its students get together to form a giant 50 in its playground.
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.
