The first British-African to fly solo around the world

In March 2017, a man pilot from Elephant and Castle made history, by becoming the first British-African to fly solo around the world.


The one man mission took nine months, with storms, mid-air electrical failures and war zones just some of the challenges he faced.


Lola Odujinrin is now planning to relive the experience at a talk in South London.
