VIDEO: Restored Blériot XI aircraft flies over Channel to celebrate centenary


In 1909 Louis Blériot made history when he flew over the English Channel on Shell fuel. 100 years later Swedish pilot Mikael Carlson marked the event in a restored Blériot XI plane, also fuelled by Shell.

This video captures that flight, which was recreated to mark Shell Aviation’s Centenary Year.
