Earlier this year Carol announced she'd be swapping the panel for the plane, and setting off on a 29,000-mile journey around the globe in 2014. Her route will take her across Mexico, Sudan and Pakistan, mirroring the ill-fated trip that her heroine - the aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart - made in 1937. This Morning will be helping her Countdown (see what we did there?) to that adventure by watching her take to the sky for her first-ever solo flight, which will see her doing a full solo circuit around Gloucester Airport.
Jenni Falconer is on hand to chat to Carol before she sets off on her journey, and Carol's progress will then be followed throughout the show as she taxis, takes off, does a circuit and lands. Carol's trainer Debra Ford will also be on hand to talk about how she's helped Carol get ready for this ambitious project.
This is the first ever live solo flight on television, so we're ready to make TV history!
