It's not everyone's idea of a honeymoon - a 12000 mile flight from Scotland to Australia in a single engine, canvas covered plane. Even less idyllic if the pilot has only 44 hours flying experience and the navigator learned her job via a do-it-yourself course. But George & Kathy Wright from Glasgow did it — eventually.
It took four months of trepidation and resourcefulness, fear and frustration, and delight and innocent blundering through the formalities of four continents. Refuelling in mid-air… landing at secret military airfields … trailed by police…. the plane looted… caught up in the sensitivities of politics …. marital tensions.
