Pilot flies with his 5-year-old brother for the first time (and now we’re emotional wrecks)

"I'm not crying... my eyes are watering."

Tony Cuddihy

This will warm your cold, cold heart and if it doesn’t you need to see a clinician.

Brotherly love plays a massive part in this video as pilot Mikey McMahon brings his five-year-old brother Robbie flying for the first time.

Robbie is living with Williams Syndrome, a rare neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 1 in 10,000 people worldwide, and his lust for life at such a young age could not be clearer.

You can see from the video how much Mikey adores his little brother, who we hope had a lovely dinner when his spin up in the sky was over.

If you’re not having a good day, please watch this.
