The flight mimics the course of an Osprey, by cruising past the towering fells and soaring down to Bassenthwaite Lake in a Cessna 172. This National Park contains some of England's highest mountains and deepest waters and the magnificent sights to behold from the plane are usually only seen by the hardiest of hill climbers.
