Incredible! Dog Becomes The First Animal To 'Pilot' A Plane After Weeks Of Coaching

I seriously doubt if I will sit in that Plane.

Well, a brilliant Dog named Shadow, has become the first animal to pilot a Plane. Shadow used his paws to steer a jet around a figure-of-eight circuit at 3,000ft following weeks of training. The dog, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier-Collie, was one of three dogs to go through flight school as part of Sky 1 TV series "Dogs Might Fly", and is now officially the first pooch to pilot a plane. The aircraft's controls were modified so Shadow could hit buttons in response to certain sounds. His human co-pilot ensured that Shadow was airborne before the pooch pilot took the controls.

Animal expert, Charlotte Wilde said: “We set out to show that dogs have extraordinary abilities, and flight was the ultimate test. "Each year, 5,000 dogs just like Shadow are put down, but through this show, we wanted to demonstrate just what remarkable and intelligent animals they are."
