It was a day to remember for the Dons family as they arrived at their home in a tiny suburban village in south-west England for the holidays.
Their son Alex, now 18, was due to celebrate his first birthday at a new flat in the village of Cripplegate, near the UK’s capital, London.
But when he arrived at Cripplege, his first question was: why is there nowhere to put his holiday gifts?
Mr Dons had been living with his parents in a three-bedroom flat in London for two years, and had set his sights on a new home.
“He said to me: ‘You know, I think we should go somewhere quiet and quiet and not have any children, but you know, when I’m older, I want to get a private plane, so I want you to put your gifts there,'” his mother, Michelle Dons, told the BBC.
Alex’s father, Peter, was initially reluctant, but eventually agreed to the move.
His mother said that after living in the flat for two months, she was “quite happy”.
“We did it the same way we’d done everything else, in a private room, with the same decorators and the same curtains, so it felt like a really nice experience,” she said.
They moved into the three-bedroom flat in Cripplegle and Alex’s parents spent the next couple of years at home.
“It’s just a really good, quiet place.
You don’t have to get up early,” Mr Dons said.
“We had lots of fun, we had lots to do.”
The Dons’ eldest daughter, Olivia, 19, moved into her parents’ house for the summer.
While the move may have been a bit “difficult” for the young couple, Mr Dones said that it was the “right thing to do” and “a great idea”.
“It’s not just for my family but it’s for the whole country,” Mr Mearns said.
The Dones had planned to buy a private-jet ticket for Alex’s birthday.
After the move, the Dones’ housemate and his partner were invited to a party to celebrate.
When they arrived, Mr Mears said that the party “felt like a lot of fun”.
“I think it’s the perfect day to take Alex home,” he said.
“It was really fun.”
The party was held in the family home, with a large party hall, a kitchen, a play area and a small pool.
Mr Mears described the party as “fun, beautiful and fun”.
He said that while he and his friends had gone to the party with a “little bit of a bit of an attitude”, the party itself had been “incredible”.
“It had been so great and so exciting and the people who were there and the guests and the food were incredible,” he told the broadcaster.
However, Mr Tredegar, from the University of Edinburgh, told The Independent that private jets were not the answer.
The university research assistant told the programme that while “there are some wonderful private jets, it’s not something I would recommend for young people.”
Mr Mearnes said that when he was 16, his dad had bought a private air-skiing plane.
At the time, the family owned a Boeing 737, and his father bought it on a credit card.
He then took it to the local airport, where he spent three hours on the tarmac before his parents allowed him to return to his home in the UK.
That same day, the young Mr Mearing returned to his family home and asked the flight attendant for his ticket, saying: “I want to go back to Scotland.”
The flight attendant agreed to take him back to the UK, and the pair spent the rest of the night on the plane.
After flying back to England, Mr Cmearns arranged for Mr Maresons to go on a “private flight” to Edinburgh.
This included a hotel in Edinburgh, where they were allowed to stay in a room with other passengers.
In the evening, Mr Jams, Mr Kiesler and Mr Mantle arrived at the airport with their luggage and a suitcase.
According to Mr Moresons, the flight took just under an hour.
“It felt like an hour and a half to go from London to Edinburgh,” Mr Jests said.
He said the flight left London at 2.30am, and when the plane landed at Edinburgh Airport, Mr Alderbrooke had the luggage ready.
“The first thing I did was take a selfie and put the bag in the luggage, and that was it,” he added.
“I didn’t need any extra things, I just put it all in my bag and it was just lovely.
I had a great time and it felt great.”
