Thanks to the generous birthday gift from the Expedition Base Team, I have just enjoyed a flight in a lovely Tiger Moth, piloted by SES Member Annabelle Burroughs who regularly flies these historic bi-planes form Henstridge airfield.


I was allowed to fly this legendary aircraft for a few minutes. It is a marvellous experience which I strongly recommended.


JBS has recently returned from an expedition to Colombia.  Read his report  here.

During the global circumnavigation, Operation Drake 1977 – 80, teams of young explorers operated in Papa New Guinea. JBS took them to see the extraordinary dance of the Duk Duk men and the procedure for capturing live sharks with a noose dangled from a canoe. This is believed to be the first time this was filmed.
