Londoner makes historic solo flight around the world

As a youngster you could say Lola Odujinrin had his head in the clouds. He loved kites and planes and was determined to learn how to fly. After years of hard work his dreams were realised in 2010 when he qualified as a commercial pilot. This year he set his sights even further, and made history, becoming the first African to complete a solo expedition around the world. But he's not keeping his feet on the ground for long, as he's already planning his next adventure and hopes to inspire others to follow their dreams.
