In an interview with the Banff Centre, paraglider Gavin McClurg talks about getting the shot for last flight in his film 500 Miles to Nowhere. "It was a big deal to get a helicopter to do some of the filming, and everything had to be right." Once the pilots were airborne, it became more about the "joy of flight."
