Jim Donaldson flying Mt. Hebo by Ancil Nance

Photo shows Jim Donaldson, flying from center launch area of Mt. Hebo, March 1994. Jim and Ancil landed half way to the Nestucca River, along Boulder Creek near a clearcut and logging road. There was not much lift on a light north wind day. We calculated a 5:1 glide out to the clearcut and that was close to what we got.

The east cliff is a potential launch area. Short hops have been made from the center knobs and the west peak, where the US Air Force used to maintain a radar dome.
