the seven bore anyone?????

Recommended Posts

Hi

I know that it has been flown before by a paramotor pilot and it is one thing i have wanted to do for a long time (i also want to surf it one day)

Luke said on sat he wanted to do it so i am now looking into more. I have found the times for the seven bore for next year and i plan to do a trip up to fly it...

If anyone has got any info on the seven bore Ie take of site's etc it would be great to know.

I know it might be a tricky flight due to alot of media helicopters/people etc.

so the more info i can get the better...

Many thnaks

I'd love to do that too. I don't mind that someone else has already done it.

Perhaps we should compile a list of other mini-missions. Here are a couple for starters:

Fly the length of the major rivers: Thames, Severn etc.

Fly around the M25 (I know it was done last year but that doesn't mean other people can't do it)

I've been trying to work out how big a wing I'd need to turn Relativity into the first "SkyBoat" but I might need more horsepower than my RAD has to get 23 tonnes of rusty narrowboat into the air ;-)

But seriously, with all the lakes near me I'm really tempted to see if I can work out how to build a water launched "trike"

Perhaps I should just get myself back in the air first ;-)

Lay the wing out on the bank, set off briskly and hope it pops up before it gets to the water :-)

On landing, keep just enough speed up to keep the wing up until you get back to the shore and let it come over your head onto the bank :-)

Isn't theory a wonderful thing?

Aha, either a big boat, or two boats (one would have to be, ahem *quite wide*!)
