Spinning on the Wind

Spinning on the Wind

The arrival of the 1960s saw the dawn of the homebuilt gyroplane. A new genre of aviation like nothing seen before: a wing that lives and breathes, driven purely by the wind. Deceptive in its simplicity, addictive in its freedom and deadly to the unwary. It's a powerful enchantment.

In domestic garages and garden sheds, ordinary people built tiny rotorcraft - then taught themselves to fly by reading the instructions.

Two pioneers were smitten by this exciting new form of flight and set out on an identical path, weaving a circle of coincidence that spanned five decades and encompassed a nation.

It's a fine line between rapture and tragedy.

One flight is all it takes...
