Terry flying a borrowed two seater trike attempting to break a record flying across the UK from Thorpeness in Suffolk to Aberystwyth in Wales. Unfortunately he ran out of petrol while over Shobdon half way across Wales. Approx 1983 Winter.

And David and Jacob signing the barograph for the record of the flight


It was not until 1979 that a flexwing hang glider could fly the sand dunes at Thorpeness, although David's VJ23 had been flying there since 1973

Flown by Terry on a 'Birdman Sports' Cherokee this photo is off that first flight.
