Taking to the skies

Bruce Rogers launches his powered glider Wednesday at Burlington’s Skagit River Park as Tim Callahan watches. A small engine carries the plane to a prescribed elevation, then turns itself off. The pilot then remotely flies the glider before bringing it in for a landing. The Mount Vernon men said flyers are welcome to join them and others at the park about 11 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
