At times, calling on the wind gods to do their thing, hang gliders from across the nation showed up at Sand Turn in the Big Horn Mountains to take to the air at the annual Hang Glider Fly In over the Labor Day Weekend.

Johann Nield of Dayton has been hang gliding for thirty-three years and he says the weather couldn't have been any better.

Over 25 flyers showed up from across the nation including Minnesota, Montana, Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming, launching from Sand Turn and landing in Parkman, Dayton, and Ranchester.

Nield says the Fly In is a family affair.

No worries about becoming bored hang gliding.

Interested in hang gliding then do it right. Take lessons. Nield and his sons are available to teach safe hang gliding.
