Captain Solomon Quainoo, the Ghanaian pilot who piloted the biggest passenger aircraft in the world, Airbus A380 from the United Arab Emirates, Dubai to Accra to commemorate the newly built Terminal 3 of the Kotoka International Airport couldn’t help it but shed tears on live radio.
The captain who made a historic landing of Airbus A380 on the tarmac of the $250 million newly built Terminal in an interview with the Chairman General, Kwame Sefa-Kayi on Peace FM disclosed that if not for his school father, late Jerry John Owu (Koforidua Sec Tech) and Nicholas Sarpong, his dream of becoming a pilot wouldn’t have materialised.
He narrated that his friends used to laugh at him anytime he shared his dream of becoming a pilot because of his poor family financial background ─but the prayers of his school father and his friend kept his dream alive.
Captain Solomon Quainoo again disclosed that he had to work as a labourer at construction sites, a cleaner and food service delivery at a point in his life ─all geared towards achieving his dream of becoming a pilot.
He again disclosed that he shed tears after safely landing the biggest passenger aircraft in the world on the tarmac of the newly constructed Terminal 3 of the Kotoka International Airport.
