Weekly Photo Challenge: Close


A ‘close call’ a ‘close shave’! Fortunately the pilot and his passenger (a close friend of ours) were uninjured when this AX3 fixed-wing microlight (ultralight, ULM) crashed into the trees just after take-off on our airstrip on Thursday. Unfortunately, when the aircraft came to rest, they were 30 feet off the ground and had to climb down the trees!

    • Us too Jeff. It could have been far worse if they’d come down between trees – or punched a branch through the windscreen. Very lucky!

    • Thanks D, in actual fact the microlight is probably not repairable. Very sad seeing them drop it out of the trees yesterday – and quite scary!
