The idea for this real-life Flight came from the pages of the October 2007 edition of "Aeroplane Monthly', a magazine which has been the source of inspiration for a couple of Flights that I've created. In this one, two university undergraduates - one the pilot, the other a friend who wanted to go to Iraq
to see his parents - fly an old Bristol Fighter from England to Baghdad via France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Syria and then return via Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Italy and France. The 'Brisfit' they bought for 100 pounds. Built in 1918, it had been declared surplus by the Air ministry in 1924 and was registered G-ABYE. The journey began on August 10th. 1934 and they returned on September 17th.
