Hero easyJet pilot was already a legend with passengers thanks to brilliant acts
Captain Mike Bradley was hailed a "legend" when he spared easyJet holidaymakers a long delay by taking the controls and flying to Spain but we can reveal that the pilot is no stranger to looking after customers.
The pilot regularly wows passengers with his "brilliant" and "funny" mid-air briefings making flights "fun times".
In June, 2015, passenger Felicity Baker tweeted easyJet about Captain Bradley saying: "Please tell your Captain Mike Bradley(?)who just flew me home to London from Copenhagen that he's a legend. Loved his announcements!"
When easyJet replied suggested she nominate him in the Spirit Awards Felicity replied: "Haha I will. Now he's opening our door single handedly because of the power outage."
She described the flight as "fun times".

Another passenger on the Copenhagen to London flight took to Twitter to commend Capt Bradley tweeting: #gatwickairport staff banging on the plane window asking where we came from, @easyJet captain Mike keeping us entertained #gatwickpowerout.
She added: "Your team, Captain Mike Bradley, Lilly and I think her name was Sally (at the back of EZY5368) were brilliant!"
And former Arts Editor for the Liverpool Echo, Joe Riley, wrote about Capt Bradley in his column in November 2008.
"Under the headline 'First class officer' Joe said: "Not since my 2005 commendation of former West Coast Line train manager Will Norman – later featured on the cover of Virgin’s in-house mag for outstanding customer service – has there been another such obvious brighten-your- day candidate for travellers.
"Stand up – but not at the controls please – easyJet first officer Michael Bradley who flew the plane from Paris to Liverpool on Monday morning.
"His suave, brilliant, fluent, informed and amusing mid-air briefing was a tonic to all on board.
"More importantly, it was an antidote to the usual piping, brain-numbing, pseudo-posh, Wirral-Scouse, semi-literate, part-read-off-a card cabin twaddle regular passengers so often have to endure."
The following week reader Bill Brown from Billinge wrote to the paper's letters page to talk about his experience of flying with the pilot.
The letter was published under the headline 'Dashing pilot Bradley' and said: "I don’t agree with his comments usually, but he was spot on about easyJet pilot Michael Bradley.
"My wife and I are regular passengers on the Malaga route and last month we had the pleasure of him flying us home.
"All the passengers around us were laughing and talking about his excellent commentaries. So much so, we asked the hostess to pass on our thanks to him.
"When we landed, he asked to see us and let me take a photo of him.
"So to suave, dashing officer Bradley, thank you for making our flight a fun event."
