Two Canadian aircraft enthusiasts are setting off from Coventry airport on Thursday on the adventure of a lifetime. George LeMay (54) and Alf Bicknell (49) will be flying a 32-year-old museum piece, a Dragon Rapide not designed for long-distance travel, 5,000 miles across the Atlantic to Calgary, Alberta. For the past two weeks Mr LeMay, a part-time farmer, and Mr Bicknell, a commercial pilot, have been checking and adapting the silver and blue Dragon Rapide, the latest edition to their collection of vintage aircraft. "I started looking for a Rapide about 16 years ago," said Mr LeMay, who already owns 2 Tiger Moths, a Staggering Beech and a single-seater "Flybaby." "My neighbours were over here on holiday and they phoned to say there was one at Baginton." It was a bit like buying a dark horse, we hadn't seen it and we had to take the words of a man I spoke to on the telephone." said Mr LeMay who bought the eight-seater plane for £2,500 four weeks ago. They have had to fit extra fuel tanks for their 60-hour flight, which includes one "leg" of 1,000 miles across the ocean from Greenland to Laborador. "We have installed transistors and have all the navigational aids." explained Mr LeMay, a former stunt-car driver who now flies for a hobby. "There are always things that can happen but we are taking all the necessary precautions. We have self-inflatable rafts aboard and so on and the aircraft is single-engine operable so if one fails she'll maintain flight. "I believe in those Gipsy engines, they're very dependable." The Rapide - used in Britain for passenger trips - was once used for freight by the Canadian Pacific Airways, but Mr LeMay and Mr Bicknell believe that the Coventry plane will be the only Dragon Rapide in Canada. "They'll be green with envy when we take this one back," said Mr Bicknell.
