Hump Flight Reenactment

Buzz Buggy Buzz Buggy has just undergone a complete rebuild and flew for the first time on the 24 of November. Once test flights are successfully conducted we will depart for China.

Weather is good through January and February so we have about a 3-month window to complete the flight in. Due to the time delay and the Christmas holidays approaching we will not plan to fly before the first of January, 2016.
