Birds have had a monopoly on the skies for too long. Screw them, flapping around like the heavens belong to them. No longer we say. It's time for us to claim the sky.
In October our pioneering paramotorists cannoned across the USA like a pack of flying dogs. They battled bad weather, inhospitable terrain and mechanical woes to race to the finish, but finish they did (mostly).
Now you can drink in the glory of their achievements without even leaving terra firma.
