Dan Buchanan flies the 'Sonic' hang glider by Moyes Delta Gliders (Botany, Australian) over the Fargo AirSho.
Dan Buchanan can't feel his legs when he tries. The 42-year-old's legs were paralyzed in a 1981 hang gliding accident. Today, he's the only professional hang glider plot on the nation's air show circuit. Buchanan will perform his aerial ballet in an Australian-built Moves Sonic Glider both days of the show. He was the 1999 recipient of the "Bill Barber Award for Showmanship" by World Airshow News.
"Dan is not only a showman, he is an inspiration to people who wish to live their dreams," said Dave Weiman, editor/publisher of the publication. -The Forum.
