• Extreme Kellie: San Diego Bi-Planes

    Over the past year, I've been out trying some of the most extreme sports in Colorado.  This month, we're trying something new.  We're taking "Extreme Kellie" on the road to sunny southern California to try new adventures you just can't find here!

    First stop, I hit the beaches of San Diego!  There is truly nothing like the view of the ocean at sunset and I got to see it thousands of feet up in the air. We went barnstorming in a 1920's bi-plane; it was like taking a trip back in time...

    We met pilot Chuck Buckley at Montgomery Field who showed us the classics... a North American Texan he takes tourists out on aerobatic rides, two Varga aircraft (dog fighter airplanes)...

    And this- A 1927 travel air bi-plane, built out of metal, wood and fabric.  The best part, it's painted perfectly for a Bronco fan in San Diego!!!  I loved it!

    Chuck started up the World War II engine, we geared up and headed straight for the coast.

    The plan: fly northbound around La Jolla, up toward the Torrey Pines area and then swing back into the airport.  It's truly one of the most gorgeous spots in California.  We could see for miles.

    The bi-planes are very much like travelling in a convertible, super noisy but a ton of fun!

    We got to see the bay, the hills, ocean bluffs and beaches... all at sunset.  This is the lay of the land for our next few adventures and I couldn't wait to get started!

    Catch our full story Thursday night at 7pm on The Deuce!!!  Thanks again to Vitalyte for making this all possible.  You'll see more of the crew in the coming weeks... Next, I'm swimming with the dolphins at Sea World...
