Former Flybe pilot Stephen Lynn out delivering food for Streamvale Farm in Dundonald

A former Flybe pilot from Co Down has told how he still has ambitions of a return to the skies - despite landing a new job delivering food orders.

Stephen Lynn (29) had only been in the cockpit as a fully qualified pilot for 10 months when the airline went bust in March.

The young Holywood man had just spent £100,000 on an 18-month pilot training course in Spain where he lived for the duration before joining Flybe in Belfast.
