Bleriot Plane at Selfridges. Restoration sponsored by Bremont.

Shoppers in Selfridges have the chance for a week to marvel at a feat of aviation 100 years after it first amazed visitors to the London store. An original Bleriot monoplane owned by Swede Mikael Carlson which on Sunday 26th July flew over the English Channel to mark the centenary of the first cross-Channel flight went on display on the shop's ground floor.The store, which is also celebrating its 100th year, will recreate the exhibition with Mr Carlson's craft until August 2.

The restoration of the plane and yesterday's trip was sponsored by watch company Bremont.
