Belize Bush Pilot video

A few weeks ago, I described my Belize from the Air — skimming the forest canopy in a five-seater Cesna. I finally got around to posting this video from that day.

Daniel is an esteemed pilot who has been flying all over Belize for decades. It was honor to fly with him. It took about 20 minutes to fly the entire width of Belize, from Municipal Airport to the strip at Gallon Jug, near the Guatemalan border. At one point, we flew over the soaring wingspans of several King Vultures.
