Dan Buchanan's Hang Gliding Pyrotechnics

Dan Buchanan flies a hang glider and performs a great routine. His glider is towed behind a pickup truck with a tow line up to about 1,800 feet before the line is released. He then performs manuevers and launches pyrotechnics while doing the routine. What is amazing is that Dan is a parapalegic. He lands the glider on wheels and transitions from his hang gliding cocoon to his wheelchair effortlessly. He loves the crowds and is often seen at  shows signing autographs and talking to children after his show. He is an inspiration to everyone, not allowing anything to stop him from doing what he loves.
