Microlight pilot's 16th birthday flight

Ethan Sherry from Dungannon, County Tyrone, has joined an elite group of pilots by completing a solo microlight flight on his 16th birthday.

You must be 16 to fly solo and it has been his long-held ambition to do so.

He completed the flight at Newtownards Airport in County Down on Friday.
