A pilot friend gives warm account after seeing Lazair on
You Tube:

If you go to the museum at the Lakeland airport, you will see a Lazair hanging from the ceiling. It used to belong to Jack Arnold, who lives locally here in Bristol. I have some in-flight shots of it from back in the 80's. I made a flying video called "Hummers in Autumn," designed and made a camera mount so that I could shoot in flight videos, and once I figured out how to keep the vibration out, it worked pretty well. I was supposed to have flown that one at Lakeland, but on the day I went to Abingdon, the wind came up, and I decided not to fly an airplane I wasn't familiar with in breezy conditions. Wish I had, the Lazair was the first ultralight I ever saw that had great control authority, and the first I ever saw do a loop, that was in Tullahoma.

If that was Tullahoma 1980 I was there ! Ah you should have seen Peter even in a Series I outfly all the early UL junk that was there. When the kites were lucky to get off the ground and back down in one piece the Lazair was out there doing loops.
