Angel Flight West Event Features Volunteer Pilot, Astrophysicist Brian Keating

By - March 7th, 2013

"Dr. Keating’s presentation lived up to its title: “Extreme Astronomy (and Aviation)–Flying to the Ends of the Earth to Glimpse the Beginning of Time. He captivated this crowd of pilots and flight fans through humorous accounts and photos of enduring a 30-hour cargo plane flight; of landing on ice at 9,000 feet above sea level; and of building a multi-ton telescope installation at the South Pole in gale-force winds known to tear flesh where average temperatures range between -40 and -118 degrees Fahrenheit."
