Historic African biplane flight commences
The weather may not have played along, but female pilot Tracey Curtis-Taylor has finally commenced her solo Cape Town-to-U.K. flight in a vintage Boeing Stearman biplane. Curtis-Taylor is recreating the 1928 flight by English aviatrix Lady Mary Heath by covering more than 7,000 miles in an open cockpit Stearman over seven weeks. Heath was the first person to fly this rout, which later became the Imperial Airways route.
