What a lovely film. And what a lovely Dad to have!

It brought back warm memories...When I was this little kid's age my Dad was a pretty ace model airplane freak...making rubber band powered planes out of balsa wood, tissue and size.

Not quite as hi-tech as this kid's adventure though...My Dad sent one of my toy soldiers up (must have been at least 50 feet high but it seemed like outer space to me).

Then, at the crucial moment, he tweaked a nylon line and my soldier released and simply parachuted down like an SAS para.

All kids should have daffy dads!

A heartwarming movie of a lucky lad and an inspirational dad. Wonderful!
