Product description


Gertie is a microlight aircraft. Her owner, Eve Jackson, flew her from England to Australia in 1986, a feat for which Eve was awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Aeronautical Society. Fully 17 years later, Eve decided to emigrate to East Africa and help with wildlife conservation there. She also decided to take Gertie with her. This is the story of what must surely be the most unusual emigration flight of modern times: a day-by-day diary of how, living by her wits on a strictly limited budget, she flew solo from England to Tanzania in a tiny two-stroke powered aircraft. Captured by rebels in Sudan after an emergency landing, lifted by an unexpected romance in Kenya, and frustrated by bureaucrats everywhere - Eve's flight was nothing if not eventful. This frank and highly amusing account is not just compulsive reading for aviators; it's a must for anyone with a sense of adventure and an interest in wildlife conservation.
