Hang Gliding on Wideford Hill

Hang Gliding on Wideford Hill summer 1976.The club disbanded after I had an accident,crashing and extracting 13 teeth with the control bar. The hang glider was for many years in the hanger at Kirkwall airport complete with bend and teeth marks! It was collected in july 2005 by someone from the British Hang Glider Museum in Bristol .He was amazed in what good condition it was in

Gives a whole new meaning to 'flying in the teeth of the wind' Tim. I'll post a shot of something maybe a wee bit safer. (We all know that if God had meant us to fly he'd have given us the Wright brothers, but you're not related are you?)
