The flying visitor

A MADEIRAN pilot who spent a most of his career flying in and out of Jersey revealed this week that he has only ever set foot outside the Airport once.
Captain Timoteo Costa, who has retired after 24 years piloting flights between Jersey and the Portuguese island, knew Jersey better from the air after countless landings and take-offs here.
On Tuesday, he completed his last flights into and out of Jersey, having flown more than 170,000 passengers between the two islands over the years.
