PORT DOUGLAS Ultra-lite crash site

Ben Cropp and Sharon England were flying and out of sight. A different type of ultra-lite attempted take-off as I watch. At full take-off speed the wheels clipped a mound of earth just as the craft had lifted off. Everything spun head over tail in front of me, and landed out of sight in tall grass. I expected to see mangled bodies and blood everywhere. Not so, they walked away – bruised and shaking but intact. A few minutes later it was my turn to take-off with Ben…….note the worried expression in the self portrait (above).
