Flight Paths: England – From Chichester to the Isle of Wight

Vincent is on board an Aerobility plane, a vessel operated by handicapped pilots. We meet Barry, who has lost all feeling in his lower legs but remains a skilled pilot. Together they explore Hurst Castle, an impressive military fort made by Henry VIII to use against Napoleon. Then crossing over to the Isle of Wight, Vincent sails with Stuart, manager of the Royal Yacht Squadron, the most prestigious nautical club in the world, and the first team ever to win America’s Cup. Then in Goodwood, Vincent realises a lifelong dream as he is united with a real Spitfire from the Battle of Britain.
