Taking Flight Above the Mountains of Idaho and Wales
A friend of mine from broadcast days spent many years doing traffic reports from choppers and planes. He can’t get enough of flying and sent me this link to a video from Wales. The USAF and RAF are practicing mountain flying. It reminds me much of the pictures I’ve seen of pilots from Mountain Home testing nearby mountain ranges.
I can tell you I’d like to take a picnic basket and spend an afternoon on that Welsh mountaintop. Two years ago a friend of mine who served long ago with the Thunderbirds took me to see the team fly at Ocean City, Maryland. The flight demonstration above the Atlantic is thrilling. I think Mountain Home would offer an entirely new experience!
