The flying Land Rover

Most Land Rovers are made for the land, some purely for tarmac (hello Evoque!) and few were modified for the sea. But the Land Rover Lightweight  – or: Airportable – is the one built to fly. Not only so it would fit in the cargo space of a C130 Hercules airplane or hanging under a Westland Wessex helicopter, but also bungling beneath a parachute. One of our clients, a Lightweight owner and former British paratrooper, sent us this great image of a Series 2a Lightweight just after it was pushed out of a C130, seconds before for the parachute opened. Thanks Ian!
