South African pilot captain Jeremy Ascough says from as long as he can remember, he has always wanted to be a pilot.
Ascough is part of a successful team which broke the world record for circumnavigating the earth by passing over both the North and South Poles.
He joins Kieno Kammies to discuss the world record.
When I was three years old, I lived in a little town called Plumtree and every year we have this agricultural shows by the AirForce and I was in the back of a ride and I remember seeing the instrument panels thinking that is what I want to do. I didn't want to be anything else, I always wanted to be a pilot.Captain Jeremy Ascough, South African pilot
He says it was extremely humbling being part of the record winning team.
Everyone that was involved in that operation was at the top of their game. You kind of felt that you were continually surrounded by magic. There was a core team of eight people who were on board all the time.Captain Jeremy Ascough, South African pilot
