The Great Flying Challenge

Harry Ferguson  – First Man to fly in Ireland – “The Great Flying Challenge” on BBC2

The BBC have made a series of programmes detailing Harry Ferguson’s amazing exploits over 116 years ago. Harry designed, built and flew the first aircraft in Ireland.

The programmes show a team re-creating the aircraft to a similar design. They then go on to get the aircraft in the air to re-create the short flight Harry Ferguson bravely accomplished all those years ago.
