Dreamliner fly-past for Derby's Rolls-Royce staff

British Airways has organised a Dreamliner fly-past for the 11,000 staff at Derby's Roll-Royce site.

The gesture, which involved one Dreamliner, accompanied by a Spitfire, was a "thank-you" to employees at the Pride Park office who designed, developed and assembled the Trent 1000 engines that power the aircraft.

James Roberson spoke to John Griffiths from Rolls-Royce.
