The Great Race

After walking around the Chattanooga Market I headed over to check out the finish of today's leg of the Great Race in Chattanooga. Over 125 vehicles are participating in this nine-day, 2,300-mile rally, everthing from a 1909 American Simplex, to a 1971 Chevrolet Corvette.


Plus the Chattanooga Cruise-In. So lots of interesting cars to look at.

What's Up?

Why its me, in a new (for me) flying machine - all my previous flying experience had been in helicopters and small/medium fixed wing airplanes so this was quite a change! A couple of days ago I climbed aboard this ultralight weight shift aircraft for a flight above Jasper, Tennessee. If you think it looks a lot like a hang glider, you're right - except this thing has a fuselage (sort of) and an engine. The other major difference between this this aircraft, and the traditional aircraft I'd flown in the past - no license required, hey, even you can do it!

Sorry, no pictures from the air - maybe next time.
