Microlights over Port Meadow

Port Meadow has been home to flying machines of various kinds over the years. There was an RAF aerodrome there once; there was a 1935 plan to build a proper airport; we used to have a model aircraft flying club; and big planes heading for Brize Norton pass by quite frequently.

What set me thinking about this was a microlight which appeared one evening last week. This photograph captures it as it headed west towards the trees at Binsey, accompanied by some ducks.

My best microlight sighting on Port Meadow dates back to 2007 when I happened to be out there with a camera when this chap came along.

His low run across the frozen water would have been interesting enough without his splendid Union Jack canopy.

He too had ducks for company.
