In 1975 the Lansburgh brothers set out to make a great flying film that would win an Academy Award and guarantee their success in the film business. They came pretty close. DAWN FLIGHT received an Academy Award nomination. Brian Lansburgh eventually founded Sunriver Soaring and now flies the Big Yellow Glider.

The film has recently been digitally re-mastered and is offered here at the Tailwheeler's Mercantile.

This is the rare long version of the film. Brian invited Denis Arndt, the star of the picture, to come up for an interview and a flight in the Big Yellow Glider. That interview, including their flight is included in the Special Features, along with Brian’s commentary about the making of the film.

DAWN FLIGHT is 22.5 minutes long; the interview and flight with Denis Arndt is 46 minutes and the film maker’s commentary is about 24 minutes.
