It is July 2000 and Geoffrey Walton is caught on camera as he prepares to fly David and Beci Allen, a farming couple from Rush Green in Norfolk. Actually Beci is his sister-in-law who provides food, lodgings, crew and take off sites.

Simon Bird is on hand to man the fan and and demonstrate his latest toy, a digital camera. How could he get bored with his other toy, a Garmin GPS.

In the far distance on the left you can just see Bethany Walton, aged 4 1/2 totally ignoring everything.
