94-year-old RAF veteran returns to the cockpit

This is the incredible moment a 94-year-old RAF veteran returned to the cockpit to fly in a WWII Tiger Moth plane.

John Watkins joined the RAF in 1942 and later served with 617 Squadron - also known as "The Dambusters".

Sergeant Kirkham, of South Yorkshire Police, met Mr Watkins, on Armed Forces Day and listened to his incredible story of his time spent in the air force.

Mr Watkins told Sgt Kirkham about the blitz and being "blown off his feet" the night the Luftwaffe visited his hometown of Rotherham, South Yorks.

With help from two of his friends who own a second world war Tiger Moth, the sergeant arranged to return him to the cockpit for an emotional flight.
