  2. Angelina Jolie, Renaissance Woman, Can Also Fly and Land a Plane
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    As a crusader for refugees, a devoted mother of six, and a women's rights activist, Angelina Jolie is a modern-day renaissance person. So much so that, at this point, her Oscar-winning acting is simply an afterthought. So you'd be forgiven for not knowing that Jolie also happens to be a seasoned pilot, as she reminded the world in ITV's The Queen's Green Planet, which aired last night.
    Jolie not only knows how to maneuver a plane—during sunset in the Namibia desert, no less—she can also flawlessly land one. "It's beautiful…I think it's the most beautiful place in the world," Jolie said to her copilot while up in the sky. As breathtaking as the views were, they weren't exactly something to celebrate. Jolie lifted off to take notice of how rapidly the desert is growing in the wake of climate change. "Even in the last decade [climate change] is so noticeable, and the expanding deserts," she said. "I love the deserts, but we don't want it expanding in such a way."In the same documentary, Jolie spoke at length about the environment, even revealing how Queen Elizabeth II's conservation efforts have inspired her and her children. “For us to come here and say to the children, ‘This is why it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids, and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message,” she said.As for her pilot skills, Jolie has actually been certified to fly since 2004. (Though she had a brief hiatus while waiting for her paperwork to get renewed in 2013, which was, for some reason, a news item at the time, as E! reported.) It was in the U.K. that Jolie first took up lessons. "I learned to fly a few years ago in England," she told Vanity Fair in 2010. "When Maddox was one and a half, we used to go to the airfield, have lunch, and watch the planes. And it dawned on me: I could fly. So I promised him I would fly by his second birthday." Her favorite part about flying? "It's the only place I'm completely alone—up in the air, detached from everything." No doubt that matters now more than ever, as her and her estranged husband Brad Pitt's personal lives have come under scrutiny in the aftermath of their separation.

  3. Angelina Jolie wows viewers by "nonchalantly" flying a plane over the desert in The Queen's Green Planet
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Is there anything she can't do?
    Angelina Jolie impressed viewers as she flew a plane with ease and elegance over the desert in Namibia in ITV's The Queen's Green Planet last night.

    The actress and committed humanitarian featured with her six children in the documentary about Her Majesty's plans to protect the environment.

    "It's beautiful… I think it's the most beautiful places in the world," Jolie says to her co-pilot as she flies over the desert.Commenting on the impact of climate change, the star continues: "Even in the last decade [climate change] is so noticeable, and the expanding deserts... I love the deserts, but we don't want it expanding in such a way."Sir David Attenborough - who teamed up with Her Majesty to make the documentary - also provided the programme's commentary, and revealed that Jolie has partnered with the Namibian government to make a unique plant nursery to replace dying trees in the desert.

    Fans were also wowed by the Jolie's plane skills - she's held a private pilot license since 2004 - along with her contribution in preserving forest conservation in Africa.Jolie also only had wonderful things to say about the "lovely" Queen in the programme, and revealed she constantly educates her children on the monarch's stance on the importance of conservation.

    "What it comes down to it you say to the kids, 'You know really, you don't know her, you can't understand all that it means to be a queen and all that,'" Jolie explained.

    "But you try to say, 'You know she's just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future.

    "And she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures. She thinks that really matters and I agree with her."

    The 91-year-old monarch and the Oscar-winning actress previously met when Jolie was made an honorary dame by the Queen for her campaigning work fighting sexual violence in 2014.
