Photo of the Day
FAI World Air Games Dubai 2015
Paramotor pilot Karen Skinner (GB) took an early bath on Saturday when she splashed down into the sea while flying a pylon task.

"I thought, 'OK, I'm going in' and that was it," she said afterwards. A safety boat fished her out quickly and she and her machine were rinsed down and dried off, no harm done.

"I'll never live it down," she laughed, as she posed happily yesterday with her new favourite toy – a rubber duck a fellow competitor had given her.

Karen was back in the air yesterday morning where she successfully completed the second round of pylon flying – 100% dry this time. Bravo Karen!
