Cape Town to Goodwood at the Revival – 13 September 2013

In November this year Tracey Curtis-Taylor will fly her Boeing Stearman ‘Spirit of Artemis’ from Cape Town to Goodwood to commemorate a similar flight by early ‘aviatrix’ Lady Mary Heath in 1928, the first pilot to successfully make that 7000 mile trip, but which finished in London.

To help promote the venture a photocall was held around Tracey’s Stearman on the Friday of the Goodwood Revival, involving Lord March and the five months pregnant Zara Phillips. Zara, 32, is the Queen’s grand-daughter, and not surprisingly drew much media attention, along with husband Mike Tindall.






I later caught up with Tracey when wearing an outfit in keeping with the Revival’s vintage theme, away from the crowds:



‘Spirit of Artemis’ was containerised and shipped to Cape Town, arriving in the last last few days.
