A new type of single-seater aeroplane, capable of flying at 177 km/h (110mph), has been given its first public test-flight in the skies above East Anglia.

The £50,000 e-Go, created by a company based near Cambridge, is claimed by the manufacturer to be the first new aircraft built in the UK for years.

Designed to fill a gap in the market between a microlight and a light aircraft, the e-Go was put through its paces by test pilot Keith Dennison at Tibenham Airfield, Norfolk.
