Photo Comment

This was the second aircraft I owned, being flown here by my mate Johnno. I'm flying the pink Drifter 'Floyd' with one hand and photographing with the other: the dumb things you do when you're young! This Pterodactyl was built from a kit in 1984 by Nicholas Lord in NSW and operated unregistered before ultralights were required to be registered. It was powered by a Cuyuna 430R with belt-drive reduction gear. I bought it in 1989 and registered it. The aircraft was later acquired by the Museum of Victoria and was on display for many years at Scienceworks museum.
