This was the second aircraft I owned, being flown here by my mate Johnno. I'm flying the pink Drifter 'Floyd' with one hand and photographing with the other: the dumb things you do when you're young! This Pterodactyl was built from a kit in 1984 by Nicholas Lord in NSW and operated unregistered before ultralights were required to be registered. It was powered by a Cuyuna 430R with belt-drive reduction gear. I bought it in 1989 and registered it. The aircraft was later acquired by the Museum of Victoria and was on display for many years at Scienceworks museum.

First impression is that you are all having such a good time! After determining that Johnno is not about to fall through the shafts held only by his elbows, it is the unique look of it. Then the intrigue of what all that stuff in the front does.

What a great oldie, Phil, have you got more of them?
