Milly’s Mystery Tour

Each year in August, local radio station Spirit FM gives star presenter, Milly Luxford, the opportunity to broadcast her show ‘out and about’ in West Sussex. Producer Ian Crouch is given the task of finding a week’s worth of different venues from which Milly will broadcast whilst trying to complete a challenge set at each location.  There’s a catch; she has no idea where she is going and the challenge is not announced until her arrival!

On Monday, 12 August, Milly found herself at the Museum and with the challenge of flying the English Electric Lightning flight simulator at 1000 miles per hour – thereby joining the famous 10-Ton-Club.  Given that she had never sat in a jet-fighter or any other aircraft cockpit before, her challenge was not an easy one.   However, she performed brilliantly achieving 1000 miles per hour before losing control and crashing into the Solent.    Fortunately, her (simulated) ejector seat worked as advertised and Milly lives to present another day.
