Microlight engine failure at 300ft
This is the incredible moment a cockpit camera captures the terrifying moment a micro-light's engine cuts out in mid-air, forcing the pilot to make an emergency crash landing. Aviator John Merriman, 53, was making a solo flight in his two-seater microlight aircraft above the Somerset countryside this month, during a rare spell of good weather. Soaring at 300ft and at a steady speed of 50 knots, it was John's second flight of the day. But 11 minutes into the flight, the engine suddenly cut out, bringing the propeller to a juddering halt and filling the cockpit with an eerie silence.

Aerolite 103 Around the Pattern in Missouri
Gene Williams in his Aerolite 103 going once around the pattern. Sorry about the shakiness! The guy on the wing filming this had a lot of coffee that morning...Lol. I love this plane, I had Challenger and Starflight XC-2000 Stilletto and Quicksilver MX and this plane flies better in many respects than all of them, although the Starflight was a great bush plane. They were all good airplanes though. March 31, 2012
