It is a special series we now have, here on the transatlantic diablog. Based on the special and unique story of author, adventurer and economic innovator Garrett Fisher.
Now living in the south of Germany, Fisher originally moved there from the United States – with a special airplane.
“I am an American author that moved to Germany, with my airplane,” 2014 TEDx speaker Fisher tells the transatlantic diablog. “It’s a 1949 two-seater and I used to fly in North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Utah before coming to Germany. I fly around taking some pretty amazing photos.“
Photos, along with his personal notes added, we now present in a loose series on the transatlantic diablog.
Part one in the coming days highlights photos from Fishers adventures for his books “Above the Summit: An Antique Airplane Conquers Colorado’s Fourteeners” and “Flying the Star Valley“, and tells the story of how he became owner of the 1949 two-seater.
Excerpt from Fishers notes: “Hopeless drive. That is the best way to succinctly explain a multi-year story of flying an airplane from the 1940s to some of the craziest terrain in America, then sending the airplane to Europe to start all over on the other side of the Atlantic.“
