Happy for these to be moved if there is already a thread, G-GBNZ a Eurofox showed up
on Lord Howe Island yesterday afternoon after flying from the UK on her way to NZ,
hopefully last leg will commence this morning.
As one of the last of many RAF100 events, a team from Royal Air Force are setting out to
"Commemorate, Celebrate and Inspire" by flying a EuroFox ER light sport aircraft from
Lincolnshire, home of the RAF, to New Zealand, to the antipodes.
The team leader is Wing Commander Chris Pote (Tornado and Tucano pilot) who will fly
the whole route, with Wg Cdr Kev Gatland (Tornado navigator), Sqn Ldr Emma Landy
(Sea King pilot and deputy RAFLO for Scotland, Rachel Nugent (Met Office meteorologist)
and Off Cdt Abby McGill (Yorkshire University Air Squadron) who will each fly sectors.
