Imagine being able do that in real time? Without having to be in the military.

I was at an aviation expo where there was one stand that had simulator for helicopters. It had a street scene displayed. When questioned about the capabilities of the visuals, he asked what street world wide that we wanted to fly down.
That was about 10 years ago.

I've had girls offer to send me naked photos of themselves to keep me company in hospital ... people have sent me messages on the chat lines telling me that they're touching themselves and they'd love to just be in here and keep me company and that they'd be more than happy to wear a mask if they can stay in the same bed as me," he said.

But beneath his newfound celebrity, van Vuuren is battling serious issues.

The outdoor advertising sales rep was rushed to hospital on December 9 after continuously coughing up blood during a work meeting.

He knew immediately that his condition was serious. "I thought, I've seen this in the movies before and it's only when someone's taken a bullet in the stomach or an arrow in the back or something," he said.

After detecting a hole in his right lung the size of a 50-cent piece, doctors identified the disease as tuberculosis, suspecting he contracted it during his travels to South Africa or South America.

He was released from hospital on January 1 but within weeks was called back in after doctors realised he was infected with a strain of the disease that was resistant to many drugs used to treat it - a rarity in the developed world.

He has remained in hospital ever since and doctors are unable to tell him when he will be released.
