Not Exactly an Ultralight but …

I just know you’ll forgive my enthusiasm for sending you this non-ultralight video. This is guaranteed to get the pulse of any aviator going.

The lovely SWMBO (aka Sandra), recalls seeing one of these in a display on England’s south coast in the late 50’s. On that occasion, the aircraft did a complete roll, unlike here. The aircraft in question was also dressed in “China White, anti-flash” colours … use your imagination as to what kind of flash it may have referred to.

Sandra and I stood about 100 meters from the piano keys at Farnborough a few years ago as this same aircraft took off. The growl from the engines was phenominal. I don’t know which is more beautiful, Vulcan or Concorde.

What do you think?
