Fly-By: Oh If I had the wings of an eagle….

A post shared by John (@angry_vet_) on

Now if I had wings like an eagle
Over these prison walls I would fly
And I’d fly to the arms of my poor darlin’
And there I’d be willin’ to die

    Lovely and very cool. I think hang gliding comes pretty close to pure flight, at least the view from one looks very much like that video when flying close to terrain working ridge lift. I stopped having flying dreams after flying for several years. I miss the dreams. Wingsuits look like fun, but I’m to old for that much adrenaline, maybe it’s time to buy another glider or at least take a check ride.

    No thanks on the squirrel suit! I’ll take a nice, safe waterfall ice climb before one of those contraptions.

    Cool video! I’ll be looking for more of those. He was terrain flying, and I found it interesting what and how we went along. We have one of the largest riparian populations here; it’s nothing for me to see a dozen or more hawks per day, without trying very hard. Bald eagles often perch in my front yard in the tall trees. My favorite sightings are the rare visits by Golden eagles.
