View Full Version : Paramotor around Ripon

10-05-09, 21:07 PM
Just a line to say that while driving home along the A1 after Sunday dinner at my Mum's, I saw someone flying their paramotor just to the west of the Ripon exit. The sky was blue, the wind was light and it looked bloody wonderful. Shame I broke my prop....*sigh*. Oh, I nearly ran into the back of a truck trying to watch the paramotor. tee hee.

Anyway. I'm looking for a new prop if anyone has one. Look in the wanted topic. Ta

check out the link below, at about 19 minutes you will see Tony Morrell, he flys from a field at Ripon. Was it Tony
you spotted??. Are you going to the North East Microlight Flyin at Bagby??

I'm a member at Bagby but I trailer my plane in so yes, I'll probably be there. It may have been Tony, looked like a red and white canopy but he was quite a way off. Thanks for the link.
