Earlier this year, one of our greatest supporters and fundraisers, Brian, who is living with MND, amazed us all by boarding a plane and flying it over Devon!

Brian, who is a former Royal Marine, has been living with MND for 11 Years and for his birthday this year, he decided to fly a plane. Cynthia, one of our Association Visitors, describes the experience: “Getting in and out almost made Brian sing soprano, but determined as he is, he successfully got in! He then flew the plane, with the assistance of the pilot, who had very little to do, for one hour as far as Dartmouth. Brian stayed very calm, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience; to finalise it, he even landed the plane at Exeter Airport!”.

A truly remarkable achievement!
