Former Formula One driver Jenson Button was a special guest of British Airways on Thursday as the 2009 world champion took flight with BA in the Airbus A380 simulator where the McLaren Honda ambassador was but through his paces at the controls of the A380.

Speaking about the opportunity, Button commented by saying:

Thank you British Airways 4 giving me this opportunity to fly such a big bird! To be fair she handled better than some F1 cars I’ve driven!
