Paramotorists take to the skies

Pilots from across the country got a bird’s eye view of the stunning South Holland countryside over the weekend.

A number of people camped out at Wingland Airfield in Gedney Dyke to enjoy the fundraising fly-in.

While flying was disrupted over Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the paramotorists were able to take to the skies over Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Microlights and a gyrocopter were also among the aircraft which took to the skies during the festival.

The event was raising money for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance with a raffle along with the sale of food including more than 50 cakes, including 24 lemon drizzles.

One of the people behind the event was Jenny Higgins.

She said: “Some went over to Skegness and Hunstanton and travelled quite a distance.

“They did not do a display over the weekend but they took part for the pleasure of flying.”
