'Wings over the Wilderness' provides an in-depth account of an adventure undertaken by seven De Havilland aircraft across South Africa, Botswana and Zambia in 2011.
These aircraft, manufactured in the 1930s, traversed some incredible terrain, an experience which was noted by one pilot as a "modern Out of Africa". 'Wings over the Wilderness' is a re-enactment of the pioneering individuals who made their journeys across Africa during the heyday of aviation exploration in open cockpit biplanes, similar to the ones used in this trip.

Following in the footsteps of the pioneering flights of the 1920s, 15 vintage aircraft built in the early 1900s take to the air for a truly unique rally across the Americas. The VintageAirRally starts on the 3rd March 2018 from Ushuaia, Argentina and finishes on the 14th April in Florida, USA. The Rally connects some of the most beautiful and evocative points, combining the challenge of flying these magnificent planes with the element of competition which was equally prevalent in those early days. The Rally begins from the world’s southernmost airport, heading north to Florida, journey’s end. A rally such as this has never been done before in South America – and follows on from the successful 2016 VintageAirRally Crete2Cape.
