[Video] Soaring Near Tioga Pass Along the Sierras

Editors’ Note: Thanks to Gordon Boettger for sharing this beautiful video, which was captured with a GoPro 2 using the GoPro wifi remote in the cockpit.

Gordon has set many U. S. single- and multi-place national records from Minden, the latter with co-pilot Hugh Bennett in the Duo Discus mentioned below. Here a few links to relevant posts in the Café archives:

I took this video in the Duo Discus (DDT), the one we use on the long wave flights. This was a nice day flying out of Minden and shot in the area of Tioga Pass along the Sierra. Enjoy.
