See SWNS story SWGLIDER; FLYING solo has been the dream of a North Devon schoolgirl since she could talk and this week she did it, becoming the UKa??s youngest female glider pilot. Ellie Carter, 14, of Torrington has been obsessed with flying for years and hit the headlines a few years ago after writing to the Royal International Air Tattoo, a special aerospace event held every year, to ask if her favourite plane, the U2 spy plane, would be there. Elliea??s first solo flight was on Monday, November 28, from North Hill Airfield near Honiton. The youngster, who attends South Molton Community College, is even more determined to achieve her dream job as a test pilot after Mondaya??s flight. She said: a??I loved flying solo. I never get scared, I love being in control and ita??s important to stay calm while flying, ita??s safer. a??Ia??ve always been obsessed with flying, the science behind it, and if I had been born earlier I think I would have been one of the first female aviators. a??To be honest Monday felt like any other flight to me, it didna??t make much of a difference being on my own.a?? Her plea to see a U2 spy plane in 2012 was picked up by show chiefs at RAF Fairford who gave her the opportunity to sit in a chase car travelling at approximately 120mph as it attempted to keep up with a landing U-2 plane.
