Guest: Mark Vanhoenacker
There’s nothing like being in the cockpit of a 747, says our guest, British Airways pilot MARK VANHOENACKER. In his newly-released memoir Skyfaring: A Journey With A Pilot, he muses about the wonders of flying the world’s first jumbo jet and the sensation of flying. He joins us in this hour of Radio Times to discuss his book, which includes beautiful descriptions of flying and what the Earth looks like from 33,000 feet in the air. We’ll also hear about his journey to become a pilot and his love for his craft.
