West Auckland Airport, Parakai

Modern variation on a theme

Many of the early microlights had Rogallo wings, with a st ructure suspended and steered by altering the angle of the wing. They are now quite rare, so it was good to see this example of the type... though it is a modern aircraft will plenty of power and full instrumentation, it just looks like an old concept. With its slow flying speed and great visbility, a good aircraft for a scenic flight on a nice day... horses for courses.
