A group of wounded soldiers are going to make the world's first microlight flight to the South Pole.
They will travel by ship to the Antarctic Peninsula and hope to cover 3,000 miles at heights of 10 - 16,000 feet in temperatures as low as minus 30.
The South Pole attempt will be the culmination of three years training and testing.
