OK that vehicle could only have been taken into IMC accidentally. It would have probably been operated under part 103. I imagine she was caught unaware of lowering ceilings and was caught by spatial disorientation. I am glad no flying monkeys were injured in the incident.

So what would the registration numbers look like on that type of ultralight aircraft?

I am just glad I am not the instructor who got the call "please meet us at the FSDO and bring ALL your log books, and certificates.

BTW Saints 35 Dallas 10... I'm going to bed.

Yes - operated under 14 CFR 103.

As per 14 CFR 103.7 (c) ultralight vehicles are not required to be registered, thus no markings required.

I was a young FAA inspector in the Lubbock FSDO in the 1980's when Ultralights were starting to get popular. We had two Ultralight fatalities in one day in the Midland,Texas area.

Now Saints 42 - Cowgirls 17

Loving it.

I guess you can't call that parallel parking - more like vertical parking.

I wonder if parallel parking is still required on Driver License exams?

It is in PA. My niece just had to do it.

Speaking of parallel parking- I cannot pull into a spot and parallel park it unless it's HUGE. I have to go past the spot and back into it.
