Early pioneers of "round the world SOLO flying". Front seat punkhawallah and ground support don't count... Sure to inspire future generations.

So much for flying a restored aircraft round the world to drum up trade for post-Brexit Britain.

As the damaged aircraft is shipped home to the UK, two would-be illegal immigrants hitch a lift.
