They say that if you wanted to see what someone treasures, you should check what he captures on his camera. Somehow, this is exactly how a man named Eli John showed the world that he wanted to be a pilot. Every time he travels and rides an airplane, he always excitedly takes photos with the flight crew, dreaming that someday, he’d be a part of it.
Little did he know that after five years, he’d be a part of the team that he once took a photo with. Eli John is the living proof that nothing is impossible for as long as you’re working hard to reach y our dreams. The story of how he became a pilot trainee is now making the rounds online, inspiring thousands of netizens whom he made believe that dreams do come true.
According to his Facebook post, five years ago, Eli John took a photo of the flight crew of the flight he was on. Little did he know that after five years, he’d be able to take another photo with them, but this time, he’s already a part of the team as a pilot.
The only difference is that he’s no longer a passenger but is already under the training of the same captain that he had a photo with, five years ago.
He wrote: “Five years ago, I was just a tourist, a college student, a passenger. Always excited to have a picture with the flight crew.
“Little did I know that the captain in the first photo would be my instructor during my training as a first officer. Lol.
“Dreams really do come true if you believe.”
The first officer is the second pilot in flight which is also known as the legal commander.
With his inspiring stories, I bet a lot of aspiring pilots would also approach him and have a photo with him.
