Pilot’s dream comes true

Social Share

OPHNEIL KELLMAN JR HAD a dream and it came true in “sweet” fashion this afternoon.

The Barbadian pilot touched down on the runway at Grantley Adams International Airport close to 1 p.m. and it was the realisation of the second part of the dream he fashioned 33 years ago.

Kellman declared his career choice to his parents Ophneil and Margaret at age four, and the first part of it was achieved 19 years ago. The next step was to captain a flight to Barbados, which took a switch to JetBlue and another eight years.

His radiant smile on landing was mirrored by his parents, who met him at the airport, and wife Lisette who took the flight down with him. (YB)
