After Dinner Entertainment !


Yesterday evening as Papa and I were finished dinner and tidying away dishes and what not we heard a strange sound , almost like a remote control  toy sound . Well to our surprise there was someone flying around in a home made   ultralight plane which looks to have an engine no bigger then a lawn tractor  if  that . He was flying around our area . So of course we had to go out and see .

                                                          Papa took photos !

From the look of it there were two people on board . The pilot has his feet in the nose of the plane to control the rudders and passenger … well feet are dangling as you can see here !

ultra light-2

At one point he could barely get this little air craft to lift enough to get over the huge trees we have in the area , so close I am sure the passenger touched the tree tops with their feet at one point or other !

ultra light-3

We thought it was pretty cool and a bit dangerous but heck what’s life with out a bit of  that sometimes  lol !

He went over our house a few times quite low they could of stopped in for an after dinner cup of tea !

So this lasted for an hour or so and then back to the quiet of the evening   and that was our after dinner entertainment ! Around here one just never knows what one will get up to for fun lol !

Fantastic photos, amazing views:) Greetings said...

oh that would be scary too. We had aircrafts go over our place two weeks ago and Large helicopters. We now find out that it was soldiers in practice down the road taking off from a empty field. Yikes..

So like you say. You never know what flies in or over the place.

You got nice takes.

Now that's the kind of evening entertainment I would enjoy, as long as they were up there and I had my feet on the ground ;) Loved your comment on my blog. We thought our retirement day would never come. It will be here before you know it and then you'll say, good grief, can't believe we're here :) Have a good one :))

Hello there Elaine girl !
Your new header is so pretty !
Did Miggs get a "hair cut" for the summer? LOL
That must have been interesting to watch but I sure wouldn't want to be in one of those things .. my last flight from Holland to Toronto was my last flight, I swore ! KLM is a wonderful company .. I just never want to fly again.
Those woodpeckers are so gorgeous with that colouring !! Great shots girl : )

I fell asleep but Mountain Man stayed awaked and was rewarded with a view ! He said it was a marvelous meteor shower .
