Czech World War Two pilot flies Spitfire once again

One of the last surviving Czech airmen to serve in the RAF during World War Two has taken to the skies in a Spitfire once again.

General Emil Bocek, 93, said it was his "dream" to take the controls one last time.

He was granted his wish at Biggin Hill Airport in south London where his 20-minute flight revived memories of his time flying Spitfires during wartime.
