Photo for January 18, 2018
Jim Conrad is providing us a real Photo of the Day treat. Recent comparisons of this January with January 1977 reminded him of photos of a hang glider ride from the top of Grandfather to the Lake at Grandfather Country Club (froze by bitter cold) in 1977. Mr. Hugh Morton took photos of the event. Today is the last of three photos: 1) Tuesday, the takeoff atop Grandfather Mtn, 2) Wednesday, an in-flight photo, and 3) today, the landing on the frozen lake. The date was Jan 23rd 1977. Tom Nisbet, Steve Coan, Gerald Steinmeyer, and Jim Conrad are the daredevil aviators. Jim says they knew it was safe to land on the lake because they saw a truck drive across the lake! Hope you have enjoyed this series. Many thanks to Jim!
