    LEADING scheduled leisure airline, Monarch, gave a five year old boy from Irby an unforgettable Christmas treat when he spent the day with them at Manchester airport.

    In October, five-year-old Joshua Anderson wrote a charming letter to Monarch Airlines’ Managing Director, Kevin George, telling him how much he loves ‘Monoc’ planes with a lovely drawing.
    The letter led to Joshua being invited to spend a day at Manchester airport to see what goes on behind the scenes and learn some more about Monarch's operation.
    Joshua’s day started with a trip to the Runway Visitor Park, arranged by Manchester Airport, and continued with a trip round the airport.

    He then joined Monarch flight crew for a pre-flight briefing and went on board an aircraft before a flight, the highlight for him being given the opportunity to sit in the captain’s seat.

    Lunch was followed by a full tour of the Monarch Aircraft Engineering hangar to see some aircraft undergoing maintenance and the chance to sit in an engine.
