Whilst most of us were out celebrating the Diamond Jubilee this weekend, two pilots from Derby Aero Club were breaking a new world record.
David Jones, 32, from Tutbury and 51-year-old Jonathan Mitchell, from Longford near Ashbourne, set a new world record for the circumnavigation of the UK in a light aircraft.
Their time of 13 hours and 32 minutes was just shy of an hour faster than the previous record, set last year.
Starting at Derby Airfield, they covered over three and half thousand kilometres, despite the poor weather.
The pair raised over £2,500 for aviation charity Fly2Help, which helps people dealing with a trauma and tragedy, offering the experience of flight.
And provides support to young people through aerospace-based educational programmes.
