On way back from the factory, I saw some 'Micks' (Irish Guards) laying out a paramotor wing and engine ready for take off, from an undisclosed location in the Garrison. So I stopped to watch - unfortunately the poor chap started off really well, but then failed to launch, fell and badly injured his arm. Luckily his comrade was at hand to take him to the MO, and the engine to the workshop to replace the propellors. Good to see some fellow pilots in the area, hope the guy does not let the accident put him off.
