What an amazing week again. Was on The One Show with Carol Vorderman, starting her aeroplane. She is going to follow the route that Mildred Bruce flew round the world, in a Blackburn B2 a Bi-plane that was the competition of its day to the Tiger Moth. A beautiful aeroplane that is now kept and maintained by BAe Systems. Don’t tell anyone, but after starting the aeroplane several times for them, I was allowed a couple of circuits with the Chief Test Pilot Paul Stone. It was amazing flying an aeroplane that is part of the Shuttleworth collection; still have the smile on my face now from it.
Download on iPlayer the One Show for Wednesday the 19th November, but be quick it will only be on for a week.
(Sorry . . . the iPlayer clip is no longer available but this is a Tweet we got from the very lovely Carol 🙂
