Jim Greenshields Sets World Record Flying 43 Airplanes Within One Day!

Flight Instructor Jim Greenshields has set a new world record for the most airplanes flown solo in one day.

Jim flew 43 aeroplanes from Dunkeswell aerodrome near Exeter to an altitude of 2000 feet and back to set the record.

He started flying the first airplane at 5.30am on Saturday and it took 13 hours to complete the attempt.

The objective of his campaign was raising funds the Make-a-Wish Foundation UK who fulfil wishes for children with life threatening condition.

Jim wanted to thank all the aircraft owners who donated their planes for the day, particularly the ground crew without whose help it could not have been done.

The aircraft ranged from a vintage Tiger Moth biplane, World War Two spotter planes and a World War One fighter replica to modern fast glassfibre aircraft.
