In 2004 microlighter Ricky De Agrela set off from Cape Town South Africa with best friend and former South African microlighting champion Alan Honeyborne to break the world record for the longest distance in the smallest aircraft ever. It has been described as one of the boldest adventures in aviation history. 11 months, 32 countries and 64 000 km's later Ricky returned to Cape Town triumphant, but alone. Alan had died in a fatal accident in China. Battling this loss and the enormity of what lay ahead Ricky pressed on but not without further incidents. Each hurdle gave the expedition greater purpose and made him more determined to continue flying. This is a unique look behind the scenes as Ricky is interviewed by his 19 year old daughter Tash.
