Children are flying across Yorkshire with Santa Photo: Calendar

A group of children who have faced their own challenges and battles with health have taken to the skies above Yorkshire, on a very special mission to try and find Father Christmas.

A specially commissioned jet plane was put on from Leeds Bradford airport, so the children could spend the day in the search of Santa. They managed it! After taking control of the plane, he spoke with the youngsters and gave out presents.

Check out the pictures below from the day itself.
