Wonder how he pulled it? Billy Yeomans, a plane fanatic beat over 600 candidates who applied for the contest to find the next Sir Richard Branson. He impressed judges by creating his own plane cabin in his family home, collecting over 30 aeroplane safety cards and navigating his father on a flight to Switzerland.
Speaking on the discovery, Virgin Atlantic Founder, Sir Richard Branson, said, “As a child, I was mad about planes and the sense of adventure and excitement of being in the sky. We wanted to find someone who feels the same way as I still do about flying. Billy was the perfect young man for the job and he is going to be giving our newly refitted 747s the once over; watching films, eating our food and rating our wonderful cabin crew. Hopefully, he’ll have great fun doing it too.”
