Flying from the North Cape to the Cape of Good Hope

Successful Flight

Adventurer and SAS captain Johan Wiklund arrives safely to Capetown after his seven weeks-long journeys in an 80-year-old “Moth”. The journey that started at Nordkap included many adventures like being put in prison in Egypt accused of being a spy because of his webcam.

Navigation was done in the old days. The only electronic onboard was Johan’s mobile phone and the communication radio which was powered by a SUNBEAMsystem solar panel mounted on the curved wing (in front of the pilot seat).
