Amanda Harrison is a graduate of one of my original 'Screw Work Le'ts Play' Programmes and she's had a dream for 15 years to recreate Amy Johnson's pioneering solo flight from the U.K to Darwin in 1930.
When Amanda was treated for Cancer 18 months ago, it gave her the detemination to make this dream actually come true.
So now she's on her way on a 9,000 mile journey to Australia, in a 1942 Tiger Moth biplane.
When I saw her she was stranded in Vienna for a day after a bird strike damaged her propeller. I jumped at the chance to interview her in the aircraft hanger next to her plane.
You can also see the video of Amanda, get a close up look at the Tiger Moth, track Amanda's journey and lend your support.
