Photo Comment

At this time microlight flying in the UK was in its infancy with most aircraft being based on hang-gliders. This example was one of three present at a fly-in sponsored by the Manchester Evening News. Its registration was cancelled in 1995. With thanks to the British Microlight Aircraft Association for their help in identifying it.
