With the ever increasing cost of flying conventional aircraft many pilots turned back to the basics to get back into the air. With little more than some fabric, aluminum tubing, wires and a snowmobile engine, the Ultralight was born. First becoming popular in the 1970's, the Quicksilver Ultralight (or Flying Lawn Chair) could be had for around $5,000.00. Today this same flying machine might cost you as much as $20,000.00.
This plane is made from Michelob Ultra Beer Cans but can be made from any 12 or 16 oz beverage Cans.
