More Steam Powered Airplane

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

Just discovered a video of the Jackson, Wyoming, band that accompanies our story on “Flying Yellowstone and the Grand” (April issue). You can see the band here, and see a link to the article here where the band accompanies a slide show. If you take our AOPA Pilot digital edition, there’s yet another song near the end of the article by the band, which brings the authentic sound of the West and the Jackson, Wyoming, area to our story. Going there? See if they are performing in the area when you are in Jackson.

Steam Powered Airplane

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

No, not a real airplane, a band in Jackson, Wyoming, called Steam Powered Airplane. They perform the background music to a slide show coming out with an April article in Pilot on pilots of the national parks. There will also be additional songs with the article because the band plays music typical of the West, an authentic background for the article. Here is their Facebook page, and on there you will see a link to the AOPA slideshow. There’s a video coming out with the article as well of an internationally acclaimed opera star who just might be the pilot to take you on a glider ride out of Driggs, Idaho, to “The Grand,” the tallest peak in Grand Teton National Park.
