I feel sorry for this guy.

Were any tree bats harmed in the making of that video? If you ask me, that ultralight had a crappy glide ratio. Otherwise he could have honked it over left and made it to the dirt road.

Probably close to stall as he had just taken off and was climbing.

Climbing is quite figurative in this context, n'est ce pas?

Watch the video again, and listen for the little warning sputter of the engine. At that point he was in easy city if he had banked left to fly over the road. Depending on his skill, he might have slipped it onto the smooth road like a greased banana peel. But no ... he ignored the faltering engine warning.

Arm chair flying is so easy, eh?

Wink We are Snow Birds

On our trip we just returned from, My wife and I found out we were Snow Birds.

For those who don't know what a Snow Bird is, it's a Woman to old to get pregnant and a Man who looks like he is.

Starting to think Hawaiian shirts, Bermuda shorts and white knee high socks in sandals are OK.
