Tow Behind PPG Camera
Just turned final approach into our Powered Paragliding field that we fly out of in Morgantown PA. We were testing a tow behind camera.
Touchdown in Waupauca
The completion of formation flight training in preparation for the first evern formation flight of 50 Cherokee aircraft doing a mass arrival into Oshkosh.
The fun of Oshkosh just coming to an end and now its time to cleanup and get back to reality.
This is actually my 2nd PPG flight ever. My buddy captured the flight in video and I took a snapshot from the final approach segment.
This is the COG Railroad
After taking the COG Railroad to the top of the Mount Washington, we jumped in the Viking Witch (PA28) and flew up over the top of Mount Washington. What a beautiful day!.

I got a new Reflex Wing for my birthday and wanted to try it out. Kevin, my instructor, was at the field and I decided to give it a try. Later, Matt and Jeff played around kiting it for a while while Mike got ready to fly. Thanks guys for allowing me to bust on ya'll - you're good peeps! Hope ya'll enjoy this silly video.

I'm happy ya'll stop by and look at the video's; I figure when I celebrate a few more birthdays and my teeth start falling out, I'll be able to look back at these and remember what I used to do as a younger chap. Of course, they do have quads and trikes that can be connected below the wings, so hopefully I'll still be flying when I'm 102. Wouldn't that be scary; forget who and where I am at a thousand feet about the ground and not having a clue where to land. If ya'll find me in your back yard, can you send me home?
Hope you like the vid!

Both Joes have been flying for approx 10 years and it was obvious as soon as they got their gear out. It takes me about 30 minutes to get set up whilst it took them about 2, plus they launch with Tea & Crumpets in their hands and I don't think took more than 2 steps to get airborne. One day I'll be able to match the number of my takeoff's to good landings. :-) This video shows a bit of the creek that runs down Morgantown and some footage of J2 (Joe & Joe) flying with me. Hope you enjoy it!
