Missing pilot Maurice Kirk complains plane radio not working

A 72-year-old British pilot attempting to fly a 1940s biplane the length of Africa has gone missing somewhere between Sudan and Ethiopia.

Maurice Kirk, who lives in Bristol, was part of a vintage air rally flying from Crete to Cape Town.

He complained on a recent Facebook video that his radio had not been working for the past three months.

Vintage Air Rally said a search and rescue operation was due to begin.
