|Lewis & Clark by air/airjourney|
This would be a great trip for pilots of small planes . . . a flight along the path of the Lewis and Clark expedition, by the company Airjourney.
Yes, yes: Flying would hardly be any sort of equal to what they did.
And there'd be the stops in Lewiston, McMinnville, Astoria and Portland.
Writer James Fallows (hat tip for the pointer) suggests, "Perhaps it is a stretch to claim, as AirJourney does in promos like what's shown below, that this is a deeply historical commemoration. But I flew much of this route in a small plane nine years ago (start in Minnesota, then down to Nebraska, then west) and to this day recall many vivid scenes, which I also described in my book Free Flight."
