Soaring Pioneers
Cadet 2nd Class Tori Gilster and retired Lt. Col. Richard Trail, a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, pose for a photo last fall in the 94th Flying Training Squadron offices. Trail was the first cadet to make a successful solo flight in a glider. He and retired Lt. Col. James Leland visited the Academy to meet cadets and staff and discuss the advances made in the wake of the Air Force's only Soaring Program. Leland helped design the Soaring Program in the 1960s.'(Courtesy photo)
