WATCH: This Irish pilot took his little brother out for his first flight

Michael McMahon had the opportunity to take his little brother out flying recently and decided to film the whole thing as it was Robbie’s first flight.

Robbie has Willam’s Syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 20,000 of the population but it’s clear from the video that he doesn’t let it stop him from enjoying everything life has to offer - and that the brothers have a lovely bond.

Not a bother to him!
