Tracey Curtis-Taylor is almost a month into her latest epic journey, flying from Goodwood to Australia in a 1940’s open cockpit vintage biplane. This huge challenge is in honor of Amy Johnson, the first lady to fly solo to Australia in 1930 and wherever possible, Tracey will follow the same route. It is also a homage to pioneering aviation in the 1920’s that paved the way for air travel, as we know it today.
Aviation has been her passion since a young child, which has led to a ‘high-flying’ career in aerial photography and mapping.
With a small support crew Tracey will fly 13,000miles and the whole journey will take 12 -14 weeks. Progress and news will be updated on her website and eventually be made into a documentary.
Currently in Amman, we wish her luck on the rest of her journey and will be following closely!
