In this weeks sports challenge, we decided to move from the ground to the air and attempt to fly a plane.
The challenge this week was to see if I could hold my own with some of the best remote control plane pilots in San Angelo.
Charles Harris was gracious enough to let me use his plane for the challenge. After a quick crash course on how to fly I felt ready to go.
But before the 22-year veteran of the United States Air Force handed over the controls, I asked him what chance I had of succeeding in this challenge.
With Charles' ok we were up and flying. Had mickey mouse been on my plane, there would have been cheese everywhere as I seemed to create nothing but turbulence for the first minute or so.
But after adjusting to the sensitivity of the controls I was able to level off and glide through the air, most of the time.
After five minutes I attempted to pull off a few tricks. Three dives and two heart attacks from Chuck later, Igave up the acrobatics and continued to soar through the air.
i might not have been able to dance through the air like the other pilots but because I kept the plane off the ground and in one piece. I would be victorious in this weeks sports challenge.
