Flying in the Land of Oil

Chris Santacroce and Othar Lawrence of the Red Bull Air Force set out to break the world distance record for motorized paragliding. Texas is apparently one of the best places in the world for catching thermals so we headed to Galveston. Their plan is to fly from Galveston as far North as possible and break the 150 mile mark. We were lucky enough to spend some time in the air with them.
