A British pilot who has been taking part in a rally of historic aircraft across Africa has gone missing for the second time in a week.
Maurice Kirk’s next of kin have been informed, while organisers of the Vintage Air Rally (VAR), in which a fleet of historic flying machines are aiming to travel from Crete to Cape Town in South Africa, say they have confidence in his ability to land his plane in the wild.
