Former Royal Air Force fighter pilot Douglas Cairns poses at the
controls of his Beech Baron twin engine plane at Bangpra airfield, east
of Bangkok on December 8, 2002. High above the Indian Ocean, Douglas
Cairns takes a device from his flight bag, pricks his finger and
squeezes out a drop of blood onto the test strip of his battery-powered
glucose meter. Even at 3,350 metres (11,000 feet) and 17,820 km (11,000
miles) into a bid to become the first pilot with type 1 diabetes to fly
around the world, it is not a difficult manoeuvre for a former British
air force pilot. Picture taken December 8, 2002. TO ACCOMPANY FEATURE
