9th November 2016, for five weeks.
A flying rally across Africa, from Crete to Cape Town, for aircraft built before the 31st December 1949.
Following in the footsteps of the pioneering flights in the 1920s – the rally connects some of the most beautiful and evocative points in Africa. Flying low along the Nile from Cairo to Khartoum, past the highlands of Ethiopia before the plains of Kenya and the home of African aviation in Nairobi. Then off again past Kilimanjaro into the Serengeti – and on to the spice island of Zanzibar. After a short pause to enjoy the Indian ocean, we continue, crossing Zambia to Victoria Falls, before continuing to Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. Our final days take us into Botswana (at the specific request of the President!) and then across stunning South Africa – to the Cape, journey’s end.
A rally such as this has never been done before, ever.
