VIDEO: Two hundred seriously ill and disabled children are on the way back from a 10-day trip of a lifetime to Florida. This year the Buckinghamshire-based Dreamflight charity is hoping to inspire the next generation of Paralympians. It is made possible thanks to airline workers in the region.
This year's Dreamflight has taken off from Heathrow Airport. On board are several disabled and seriously ill children who have been given the chance to take a holiday to Florida's theme parks in the USA. The Dreamflight aeroplane was given a big send off by a group of firefighters.
Young people who are taking part in this year's annual Dreamflight are at Heathrow Airport for their flight. The yearly Dreamflight event is the biggest trip of its type in the world to take disabled and seriously ill children on holiday to Florida theme parks in the USA.
This year's theme is inspiring the next generation, so some of the UK's London 2012 Paralympians are on hand to wave the Dreamflight flyers off on their adventure.
