The things you find online….my father’s old flying machine..
I can remember the whole family thought he was plum crazy, when he built this Rhonranger back in the mid 70’s. These days, it looks totally insane!!
Dad was a flying fanatic, most of my childhood was spent sitting in 40+C conditions on airstrips in the middle of dusty nowhere or alternately I’d be ‘co-piloting’ with him.
Dad owned & re-built a host of weird & wonderful flying machines; in later years he completed his most passionate project restoring an Auster aeroplane, which I inherited when he passed. What’s a 20 something career girl, suppose to do with a vintage aircraft- I promptly sold it, to buy a yacht!
I can still remember my mother saying, if the house had wings, it would have fared much better. Nothing ever got fixed at home, for Dad it was flying all the way…right to the end..
