This post is series of photos illustrating the early days of Hang Gliding in the UK from 1974 to 1978 It is interesting (to me at least) how the designs were improved and the gliders became sleeker in a short space of time.

The front photo is of a home made Rogallo taken Autumn 1974.

The post is intended as a sort of historical documentary, rather than an aesthetic or high quality offering. The photos have been scanned from film negatives

I would like to know where this is. My first high flight was from Milk Hill in Wiltshire.
