Father Goose

Well, I thought I'd seen it all. A small microlight with a caged in propellor arrived at the airfield last week, closely followed by a van covered in french sign writing. The ground crew removed a mysterious large brown box from the back of the van, from which we could have sworn we heard.... clucking.

Chris Moullec has reared his Canada geese from birth - they think of him as their father, and so fly behind his microlight as naturally as ducklings paddle after their mother. After a couple of circuits, the geese were released from their temporary home, and they quickly flapped up to join Father Goose, eventually flying in formation with him. An impressive, if not somewhat surreal display that Chris takes all over Europe.
