Mike Blyth And James Pittman Currently In Brazil
Two South African pilots who are attempting to fly around the
world in a D6 Sling aircraft will be making a six day stop in
Oshkosh during AirVenture 2009.
Mike Blyth and James Pittman are the co-owners of The Airplane
Factory in Johannesburg, South Africa. They set out from
Johannesburg on July 18th on their circumnavigation attempt. They
are currently in Brazil where they will begin heading north along
the Caribbean islands and eventually on to Oshkosh. From there west
to California, Hawaii, and on around the globe back to
The leg from Guinea to Belem, Brazil was over 2,500 miles over
the open ocean. The pair's website says just that they're resting,
which seems to be a pretty good idea.
While at Oshkosh, they'll display their D6 Sling airplane and
we're sure they'll talk about their adventure, which at that
point will be less than half complete.
