Flying like the Birds
Autumn and the flying machines are here
A lovely Autumn day at Lake Tyers Beach and for once the skys
are not the unchallenged home of the soaring Pelicans and Sea Eagles, a noisy
mechanised flying bird has taken over the sky.
If you are looking for some exotic ways to travel then this is probably
one the best. Just put your faith in aerodynamics as Wilbur
and Orville did almost exactly a hundred years ago, strap a motor to
your back and use parachute technology (Wilbur and Orville
did without them, however I don't think they ever flew high enough for them to
work anyway, so they just carried on regardless, true pioneers :-)
Only the Pelicans could compete with the elegance, though the birds do
manage to do it much more quietly. But for the occasional
Sunday arvo with a little noise, who really cares. That true
aviator spirit is on show at Lake Tyers Beach and good luck to them.
