Ultra Light Flight

OPB | Feb. 1, 1994 7:30 p.m.

Wait until you see the beauty of the Alvord Desert from the seat of an ultra light plane! Join recreational pilots from all over the pacific northwest at the annual Alvord Desert Ultra Light Fly-in, and enjoy the view of the “slow, stop-and-smell-the-roses flying” that the ultra light pilots have come to love. Safety is at the forefront of pilots’ minds this particular weekend, but the thrill of the flight outweighs their fears of any danger.

First Broadcast: 1994
