The 5577 Challenge

5 guys from the Airplane Factory near Johannesburg and 5 girls with no technical experience attempt to build a South African designed Sling kit aeroplane from scratch in a week. The challenge is that before the clock counts out the last minute of the 7 days, the plane must be airborne. Then, in another 7 days Mike Blyth and James Pitman must fly it the length of the African continent to Europe.
