but certainly not least we have Richard Meredith-Hardy.
In 1985 Richard flew from London to Cape Town in a flexwing.
In doing so he became the first man to fly a flexwing
across the Alps, carried out an eight-hour crossing
of the Mediteranean and crossed a desert just for good
measure. Between then and now he's been busy
doing lots of other
In May 2004, Richard became the first person to fly a Microlight over Everest, towing his friend Angelo D'Arrigo behind him on a hang-glider. Richard
kept a log for most of the duration of the summit
attempt, it makes fascinating
reading. In between then and now, Richard has flown over Aconcagua in South America, flown to Sydney and over Kilimanjaro all on a weightshift Microlight!
