Like the bear in the song, they went to see what they could see. And what a sight it was, with mist in the valleys and the mountains all around.
September 13, 2008. Seven powered paraglider pilots and two powered parachute pilots were going to spend the night in Steve Beste's hangar at the Front Royal, Virginia, airport. At dawn, they would all fly east over the Blue Ridge to the Warrenton Airpark in a rare cross-country trip at the limit of their range. But the forecast called for rain and thunderstorms, so all but the intrepid Ami Abramson and Michael O'Daniel dropped out. Woody Allen was right! 80% of success is showing up. It turned out to be a perfect morning for the trip.
