Flight of Dupont – 1933

It is hard to imagine the courage it took to get into a sailplane in 1933 and take off from this mountain.
After 4 hours and 50 minutes landing in Frederick Maryland, 121.6 miles away…
When you stop on Afton Mountain and look at the view you will be in awe. But to launch from here, even with today’s technology takes real guts!!! (just my opinion)

There is so much to see when looking at Charlottesville Real Estate, just do not forget the sites and landmarks!!!
