Flying Across Britain
Since Flying across Britain hit our screens on channel4 just two Sundays ago, you have been getting in touch in the masses!
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve received thousands of messages through Twitter, letters in the post, texts, emails etc. It’s been really difficult for me to respond to all of them and so I wanted to put a message out to show my appreciation for your kind comments and say thank you for watching and supporting.
Throughout filming the whole team worked so hard and with such passion and I really think it shows through in the series. We wanted to show British aviation in all its glory, not just focusing on the big heavy duty stuff but right down to the grass roots as well.
When you have a platform such as a massive UK terrestrial broadcaster you have a huge reach to get your voice heard about the things you’re passionate about. I’m lucky enough that I get to do that. For me aviation is that, my passion, and particularly general aviation, which needs this boost at the moment.
I’ve been really encouraged by everyone who has written to me saying they are going to get back into flying, and get their kids involved or even just inspiration for tomorrows day out.
A BIG and truly heartfelt thank you to you all for allowing me to share my passion.
Please do keep getting in touch, I love reading your comments and I’m sorry if I haven’t been able to get back to all of you yet. All in good time.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the series.
In episode three we visit the stunning west Scottish Highlands and Islands. Set amongst the breath-taking mountains and the vast Atlantic Ocean I go in search of a sunken American maritime aeroplane, try my hand at landing on Loch Lomond in a float plane and get a privileged insight into our national air traffic service at Prestwick centre.
Tune in this Sunday 19thAugust @ 7pm for the next instalment and if you want to catch up or watch any episodes again simply follow the link below.
All the best,
