Harry Newcastle's flying dog


It was definitely a case of puppy love when Tony Conway took to the skies with his pampered pooch.

The canny collie cross-breed, called Harry, was strapped into a paraglider and enjoyed a tandem flight with his owner down Slieve Donard mountain.

It took about 20 minutes to glide the 2,700 feet from the top of the peak to the beach in Newcastle, County Down.

BBC Newsline's Natasha Sayee met the pair back on solid ground.
