Launching Hang Gliders Over Bryce Canyon National Park
In 1976, Rich Piccirilli, Jeff Fogleman and John Posson were the
first (maybe the only) pilots to launch hang gliders off the tallest peak in
Bryce Canyon National Park.
Filmed by world famous skydiving cinematographer, Carl Boenish, in addition to
kite-mounted 16mm WWII gun cameras, this extraordinary film, never before seen
by the public, shows breathtaking kite launches and spectacular views above one
of the world's most scenic national reserves.
Anyone familiar with Carl's skydiving films will surely appreciate his efforts
here. Included is a taped conversation between Rich Piccirilli and Carl,
himself, concluding with his crazy laugh - which will be appreciated by anyone
who knew Carl. Now, more than 40 years after it was filmed, enjoy this rare and
