It is getting increasingly exciting! In only 11 days we hope to be on our way to start one of the greatest aviation adventures: an unprecedented attempt to fly our 65-year old 'Betty the Beech' (a Beech 18 - G-BKGM) around the world with a first sector crossing the Atlantic via Iceland, Greenland and northern Canada.
