Phil then decided to give his Banana a go and proceeded to launch but, during the flight, the Banana stalled several times and Phil decided to land it. However, before he had a chance it stalled and ended up nose first in the ground javelin fashion. No damage done so he launched again but with the same outcome.
Phil then decided to assemble his foamie Red Arrows Hawk and give that ago, but after launching he flew it too far in from the slope, it stalled, and ended up in a tree.
Undeterred he had another go, only this time it stalled again and ended up in thick shrubbery down the slope.
Anyway, here is a short video of phil launching his Banana and some photo's of the couple of hours we spent at Southerndown.
