As per title, just for fun.

Two successful flights were completed after the check so a great job by all.

In the 1970's I was learning to fly at the local gliding club when one day a chap came along with an adapted hang glider much like the model above except the prop was in a shroud. He wanted some help to get it in the air as there was to much weight for one person while starting the on foot take off run.

Being a young strong farm lad I volunteered to help. However despite both of us running like go dam bar stewards with the engine howling like a banshee it never even got a few inches off the ground.

Still there was much mirth and entertainment for fellow flyers.

Not long after someone in south Wales I believe came up with the idea of a simple trike beneath the wing and microlights were off.
