I wonder if maybe when first published there was a generic picture of a UL trike there. It’s not uncommon for articles to have their photos updated and not far fetched that they’d forget to tweak the caption to suit.Lol notice the picture isn’t the aircraft.
Merely the “type”
It must be a regular thing?
Riggerrob, That wasn't a homebuilt it was a Zlin 326 flown by the Czech aerobatic champion, Ladislav Bezak. He had been banned from competing in the up-coming World Aerobatic Championships because he was bound to win and the East German host govt. made it clear that if their Team didn't win, their substantial order from the Zlin firm would be in jeopardy. This was the last straw for this company test pilot after all his hard practice, living under the oppressive Communist regime where few freedoms that we enjoyed in the West could be exercised.There was another escape - from East Germany or Czechoslovakia - where an entire family flew out in a home-built airplane.
