The UK's first disabled air display team gets ready for takeoff

Great Britain's first disabled air display team will soon be ready to perform in its first show.

One of the crew told BBC Ouch he had been a wheelchair user for 20 years, and learning to fly had been "like the light coming on again".

The four-person crew has been assembled in honour of the World War Two flying ace Sir Douglas Bader.
