HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – It was a familiar but unusual sight Wednesday night over Mount Tom in Holyoke and Easthampton. The 22News Northampton Sky Cam captured images of nine paragliders in the skies.
Watch the video above to see the paragliders over Mt. Tom.
When the winds are light and out of the west and northwest, pilots come from all over New England and upstate New York to launch their wings over Mt. Tom.
This peaceful sight has played out countless times over the last twenty years. The pilots have to carry their wings up Mt. Tom to launch and soar the two-mile ridge that faces northwest.
