This is a video of solar 1, Britain’s first solar powered aeroplane built by Fred To and David Williams.

The video is called “Race to the Sun”


There is a version on youtube here

There are photos of Reluctant Phoenix here and Fred To’s inflatable HPA Phoenix here.

As far as I know, the original production company behind producing “Race to the Sun” no longer exists.

The video is a VHS copy of the program before the titles were added.
