Fly By Wire - 1998

14 December 1998

This was a birthday treat for myself in December of 1998 and took place at Paekakariki (near Wellington) in New Zealand. The Fly by Wire location was later washed out in a flood and never returned to the spot. You were basically hoisted up in the device you see and swung like a pendulum across the valley, with the large fan behind you used to try and control the swing, trying to get as much height and precise 180 degree turns as possible to ensure the best swing.
