British adventurer Tracey Curtis-Taylor, 53, arrived today in Sydney completing an epic 14,600-nautical mile flight from the UK to Australia in a classic open cockpit bi-plane.

The intrepid aviator, who is an active supporter of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity as well as an Honorary Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Naval Reserve, set off in her 1942 Boeing Stearman Spirit of Artemis aircraft from Farnborough, Hampshire, in October, retracing pioneer Amy Johnson's 1930 flight. Tracey travelled across 23 countries, making some 50 refuelling stops.

Robert Robson, CEO of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, said: "This is a fantastic achievement and we were thrilled to see Tracey flying the flag of the Royal Navy and the RNRMC logo worldwide. Just like the Naval Service personnel we support, her determination and tenacity are unwavering. Well done!"
