Who to hug? The dog or its owner….


A chocolate labrador who flies around the UK with her owner in his six-seater Cessna light aircraft has been given a crew card after racking up more than 250 flying hours.

Three-year-old Callie, who flies with Graham Mountford, 50, is now able to pass through the Crew Only channels at airports after becoming the only dog in the UK to be recognised by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots’ Association (AOPA).

The pet, who takes to the skies every weekend and has flown more than 50,000 miles, has goggles, a special harness to strap her into the cockpit, and is rewarded with a sausage when she lands.
