Richard Meredith-Hardy, 1990 World Microlight Champion
British Microlight pilot Richard Meredith-Hardy and Italian hang-glider pilot Angelo D’Arrigo towed a Hang-glider with a Microlight to very close to 30,000 feet over Everest on May 24, 2004. Richard then went on to fly over the summit of Everest. Richard talks about the trip and how you can own a very critical piece of equipment used in the adventure. The ALPHA emergency parachute 1050 actually used on the Over Everest flight is up for auction on Ebay. The proceeds will go to Children Home Helena Prieto, a home for abandoned children in Dhaka, Bangladesh. (12/21/04)

British Microlight pilot Richard Meredith-Hardy and Italian hang-glider pilot Angelo D’Arrigo are preparing to tow a Hang-glider with a Microlight to 30,000ft over Everest in May 2004. Crazy?  Can this be possible?  Two people think it is perfectly possible, and intend to try it very soon.  There's a lot more to it than just a bit of towing too, this project is but one of a series of expeditions all over the World to investigate the migratory habits of birds of prey. Richard tells us about it! www.flymicro.com/everest/index.cfm (4/6/04)
