4th APEC III stereo view exchange - Greg Kane

Paraglider Pilot, Golden, Colorado.

Plucky aviatrix Helana Kane prepares to launch her paraglider -- and herself -- into insubstantial air 1,200 feet up Lookout Mt. in Golden, Colorado. Once airborne she will soar higher still, ascending in roiling thermals hundreds or even thousands of feet above takeoff, suspended by the handful of 2.5 mm. thick Kevlar cords shown in this stereograph. Strapped to the gallant woman's back are the few items that will accompany her on this perilous flight: the gray rucksack carries a protective backplate, drinking water, and the bag in which the paraglider will be replaced after landing; the turquoise handle at her right hip identifies the ripcord of her reserve parachute, a last resort in always sudden -- and potentially grave -- emergency; the pink and purple canvas crescent tied behind the rucksack will tense with air in flight and cushion the rare rough landing. Not among her equipment is a variometer, the specialized, highly sensitive altimeter most paraglider pilots use to find and exploit rising air. Helena flies without such aids, preferring to feel her way upward with nerve and sinew, in the eons-old manner of the troposphere's native denizens. Ricoh FF-20 twin rig: auto everything point and shoots synched with twined electronic cable release.
