    Another brave woman shows us how.

    Tracey Curtis-Taylor finishes UK to Australia biplane flight.

    A British adventurer has completed an epic 14,600-nautical mile flight from the UK to Australia in a vintage open cockpit bi-plane.

    Tracey Curtis-Taylor, 53, set off in her 1942 Boeing Stearman Spirit of Artemis aircraft from Farnborough, Hampshire, in October.

    She retraced pioneer Amy Johnson's 1930 flight, flying over 23 countries and making some 50 refuelling stops.

    ...............................................................

    How good is that then ?

    Well done Tracey, as you are showing us that it is not just the men who can do this kind of stuff.

    Yes, a great woman and a lesson to all of us that women are just as good as men when it comes to doing dangerous stuff.

    Nice photo too Angie.sunny

    A good looking girl too, but who, I have to ask, is the punter in the front seat ?

    I thought it was a series of solo flights that she made ?

    I think it was totally done solo, but I too saw someone else in the front seat of that two-seater Stearman in a couple of the photos.

    I couldn't find a definitive answer to that question Zath'.

    In one of the pictures we see the front seat filled with Christmas presents.

    I am sure that if there had been another pilot to share the flying we would have heard about it. Question
