In 1939 Alex Henshaw challenged the world to beat his record breaking flight from London to Capetown and back again, solo in a single engined 200 hp propeller driven aeroplane.
2009-May-11 a new record was set, 3 Days, 15 Hours and 17 minutes by Charles "Chalkie" Stobbart, a fantastic effort. See more...
NOW IT'S STEVE'S TURN
Subject to ratification Steve is the new record holder of the Cape Challenge flight from London to Cape Town and back !!!!!!
3 days 11 hours and 16 minutes
The individual return leg from Cape Town to London was so close that the record will probably stay with our good friend Chalkie Stobbart
Thanks to the amazing talents of IndigoSat and Xenon Consulting, and a special thanks to Tim Jackson, you can follow this record breaking flight on a map with real time tracking and up to the minute news.
