During three days, from August 17 to 19, it was held at the field Bugon in Santa Cristina (Ortisei) the two-years appointment with the Feast of Flight, an event organized by the Club of South Tyrolean paragliding. The exhibition included various aerial disciplines: acro-paragliding, parachuting, helicopter shows, aerobatic aircraft and of course a spectacular performance of base-jumping with wing-suit.
Roberta Mancino, Noah Bahnson and I have been requested to attend to this wonderful event and we did few jumps from the helicopter of Elikos, one of the company we collaborate more. In fact, thanks to the good feeling acquired with the two excellent pilots Mirko Mussner and Ascan Barone, we jumped off very close to the mountain and we followed the lines for a proximity flight that overlooked the field of Bugon.
Needless to say, the entire show has delighted the large audience, which stayed until late at night when the big party started with live music and plenty of beer!
We want to thank the organization and all the staff of Elikos or making possible this fantastic weekend.
Dear Ortisei, see you in 2014!
