The journey he took lasted nearly 11 hours clinging to a jumbo jet and losing his friend also trying to reach the UK whose body was found on a roof in Richmond surrey along the flight path to land in the UK.
Justin still walks with a limp after his ordeal, which, although happened in 2015 is still fresh and will remain in his mind forever.
