On 28 August 2016, the first Hong Kong registered homebuilt aircraft named B-KOO "Inspiration" successfully took off from Hong Kong to start a 3month Round the World journey. It carried the spirit of Hong Kong and travelled across 20 countries and landed at 40 airports, with a total flying distance of approximately 50,000 kilometres. The exhibition tells this inspirational story with the actual B-Koo plane taking centre stage.
