Bryce Canyon, 1976

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.
I am surprised to see them hooking their boots over the rear wires like that. Even with shoelaces, rather than the lace hooks that caught a wire and killed a pilot in Britain in I think 1975, the potential for snagging is there.
Man, what a landing zone!
Now, that's what I call real Bryce 3-D! (Referring to the graphics software named after the canyon...)
