The Paper Aircraft Released Into Space team were on hand this morning to greet our Vulture 1 pilot as he jetted into Spain ahead of this weekend's historic aerospace event.

We're obliged to Cade Metz of El Reg's San Francisco tentacle for seeing our man safely onto the plane, and we're delighted to report that he arrived none the worse for enthusiastically availing himself of the in-flight drinks trolley.

We should point out that our man is certainly short, but he's not short of the Right Stuff, as a few picks from his photo album show.

Indeed, his flying career began way before our fathers were a twinkle in our grandfather's eye:
