Footage of an Northern Irish dad’s first trip on an airplane at the age of 57 has amassed thousands of views on social media.

Patsy Carville (57) from Newry Co. Down was filmed by his daughters as he experienced his maiden take-off.

“My daddy’s first time on a plane and I managed to catch a video of the take off,” Patsy’s daughter Michelle Carville wrote beneath the video, which was shared on Facebook.

"It was too funny not to share."

The 57-year-old was bound for Liverpool to see his daughter graduate from University and was brought to tears with the excitement of the experience.
