In 1999, Jennifer Murray - businesswoman, artist, housewife and mother of three - became the first woman to pilot a helicopter around the world in a record breaking solo flight. Escorted all the while by Colin Bodill, several times world microlight champion, she single-handedly chartered the helicopter across the globe. They faced a gruelling 30, 000 miles - 8000 of which covered water - on a trip the aviation world believed could not be done. The helicopter designer gave them a one in five chance of making it. "Now Solo" documents Jennifer and Colin's epic journey. Taken from the audio diaries which Jennifer kept at the end of each exhausting day, the book tells of the planning and endless bureaucracy and of the tempers and tiredness. This extraordinary adventure took them from Brooklands, England to Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, the United States and Canada. En route they persevered through engine failure, emergency landings, problems with fuel supply, chronic tiredness, tropical storms and encounters with Chinese fighter jets.
