Saturday was a hot steamy day but we went down to the ultralight gathering in Greenland New Hampshire. Despite the muggy conditions there were a few interesting participants.
Every time I see on of these I am reminded of the Argentinian Marcelo Matocq who back in 1999 flew his single seat Flightstar all the way from Buenos Aires to Oshkosh Wisconsin, crossing the broad expanse of the Brazilian Amazon and hopscotching along the Caribbean islands. Inflated condoms in the wings, sitting on an inflatable mattress plugged in to a fire extinguisher in the event of a ditching at sea. A rubber tube from the carburetor in his mouth that by the means of some properly applied suction allowed him to adjust the mixture as he gained altitude.
