We start this week with a couple of heart warming stories from up in the skies. Dressing up as a donut, a phone (and erm – in stockings!) sure makes a change from the witches and ghosts that we’ve seen around here!

This week we also heard some excellent news about the future of the Red Arrows and saw the latest Chinese fighter take to the skies – even though we think we’ve seen it somewhere before!
