'I need a drink': British woman lands in Sydney after 21,000km flight in vintage biplane A British aviator has touched down in Sydney, completing her 21,000km solo flight from England in a vintage open cockpit biplane. “I need a drink. And I need a hairdresser,” Tracey Curtis-Taylor said as she climbed out of her 1942 Boeing Stearman, Spirit of Artemis, to cheers and applause at Sydney airport on Saturday. The 53-year-old pilot has flown across 23 countries, making 50 refuelling stops, since she set off from Farnborough in Hampshire, southern England, in October. Her mission was to emulate the pioneering British aviator Amy Johnson, who became the first woman to fly solo from Britain to Australia in 1930. Curtis-Taylor’s route took her across Europe and the Mediterranean to Jordan, over the Arabian desert, across the Gulf of Oman to Pakistan, India and across Asia.

Gorilla vs. Bear x 2015 year-end mix Here’s our annual year-end retrospective, a definitive 80-minute mix of the songs by which we’ll remember 2015 (it also doubles as a very emotional and hopefully serviceable misty-eyed New Year’s Eve soundtrack).

The dA–Zed guide to British subculture From the Grime kids spitting bars on Channel U to the Casuals showing off on the terraces and the ravers of Madchester dancing all night, subculture is in Britain’s blood. But in the high street imitations of the various tribes’ style codes, it’s easy to forget that these movements were often borne from politics – take the way Reggae travelled from Jamaica to form the beats beloved by the Ska kids, or the squatters’ rights that allowed art school collectives like !WOWOW! to transform a Peckham department store into a space that would define a generation of London creativity. While Nigel Farage rants about the dangers of immigration and David Cameron continues Thatcher’s legacy with Right to Buy, we take a look at the ways the youth, subculture and political resistance have formed Britain over the last half-century.
