The second man to walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin, is to take part in a charity event at Blackbushe in Surrey in an attempt to help raise money for a group that teaches disabled people how to fly.

A hundred pilots will fly around the world in a simulator in a record breaking attempt to raise the cash in October.

The charity's offering one member of the public the chance to sit next to Buzz as he takes part in his leg of the charity raising attempt.

People are from today being asked to take part in an online auction.

Others taking part are local MP Gerald Howarth, ITV 'I'm a Celebrity' Joe Pasquale and BA boss Willie Walsh.

The record attempt takes place on October 5th.
