Oxford to Sydney in a KR2

Staffordshire’s Colin Hales dreamed the impossible dream, to fly his own plane around the world. Sadly he was of modest means and couldn’t afford a plane, so he built one from odds’n’sods and nick-named it ‘Bitsy’. With thousands of hours of graft invested, even before he left, this was a man on a mission. Eventually, with tons of ONC flight maps scrunched into the tiny cockpit, he,  and his partner Nadine, took off from a runway in Oxfordshire and a few months later were landing in Sydney.  They had the trip of a lifetime and set a record for the smallest plane to EVER make that journey. This is DIY adventure and DIY film-making captured as perfectly as we will ever see. Also, Colin is the loveliest man alive, come and meet him (AND the plane) at the London film festival!
