The result is a thoughtful short documentary that aired on BBC Radio 4 in October.

It’s worth listening to online.

    Looks like that water would be or is cold. Assuming your landing was good enough to survive. Well I would say that beats flying over solid rocks, many terrain is not good for landing. Good thing the planes rarely malfunction. Charles Lindbergh flew that same plane on I think 90 more world and around the globe flights. Keeping it simple has made airplanes reliable.
