A plane, built from scratch by a group of schoolchildren in Hampshire has taken off from Farnborough Airfield at last. Its inaugural flight was delayed by bad weather this morning.
The entire project also took about three years longer than expected, because the pupils, from Yateley School, only had time to work on it after school. It is part of a scheme by the Royal Aeronautical Society to get children involved in engineering.
