This five-year-old's first helicopter ride is exactly what you need to watch today

You might remember Mikey McMahon and his younger brother Robbie from a lovely video we shared back in April.

Mikey, a pilot, had taken the five-year-old - who has William’s Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects 1 in 10,000 of the population - for his first ever flight and everyone fell for the pure joy on his face and the lovely bond between the two brothers.

And now the pair are at it again, this time taking to the skies for Robbie’s first ever helicopter ride. And, far from being nervous like most adults might be, Robbie is having the time of his life - while wearing a very cool flight suit and shades.

Looking good, guys!
