Experimental Aircraft Fly-In FeaturesThe Sky Jeep
Designed for quick takeoffs on rough terrain, the ultralight Zenith 701 is also called the Sky Jeep. Pilot Rod Hatcher flew in from Saylorsburg for Sunday's 20th annual experimental aircraft fly-in at Braden's Airport in Forks Township.
"It's the first time I landed on a paved runway in the past four years," joked Hatcher. Even his tires come from a John Deere tractor.
