The One Show with Carol Vorderman
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.
The show is no longer available to download on iPlayer but this is a tweet we got from the very lovely carol :-)
