If anybody has an interest in these curious and historical aircraft, I was down at Popham airfield today, and discovered that they are having a Flying-Flea fly-in all weekend.

I shall be there tomorrow, but only 'cos a kind Frenchman in a moment of weakness offered me a go in his HM293 (the single seat taildragger version).

Now if only I can find somebody who will let me have a go in an HM14 !

I wonder whether a 293 or even a 14 could be microlight legal.

Looks possible.

Nice picture of an HM14 Lu, although isn't the engine a little higher on that than usual?
