An 8 year old boy has amazed the world with his idea on how to track missing planes and aircrafts.
The boy named Benjamin Jensen has caught the attention of experts at Delta Airlines after he devised a pretty ingenious way of tracking down missing airliners which have crashed into the sea . The child prodigy Benjamin came up his amazing idea after he watched a TV show about missing planes, according to reports in the U.S the 8-year old came up with the idea of having giant orange balloons with transmitters floating to the surface in the event of a plane crashing into the ocean.
The youngster even took the time to sketch plans of his idea which he later emailed to Delta airlines. After a few weeks young Benjamin received a reply he tough he would never get when the airline wrote to him say they liked his idea. The amazing story has become worldwide news and his mum Laura couldn’t be happier saying: “He’s always been interested in aviation, particularly in the design of military airplanes. At first we thought (the package) was a birthday gift because he’s turning nine next week. But when we saw who it was from he started jumping up and down and saying ‘I got Delta! I got Delta!’”
Meanwhile young Benjamin also received a reply package from Senior Vice President of Security John E. Laughter: Who thanked Benjamin for his letter, Laughter also told him that he really liked his idea and would be sharing it with his colleagues, Laughter wrote: ‘I work with many Delta people, The Federal Aviation Administration, and airplane manufactures to solve problems such as airline tracking in an emergency. There are lots of experts thinking about ideas just like you sent us. I will make sure to share your plans with them!’
