My recent story on Pilots N’ Paws is now online as of Friday! I shot this on a Canon 60D and cut it in Final Cut Pro 7. See it on ABCNews.com.

At Potomac Airfield near Washington, D.C., you would expect to see pilots transporting politicians, spin-doctors and other bureaucrats to and from the nation’s capital, but on a sunny day in July, Mike Young prepped his aircraft for a different type of mission. He, along with two canine-handlers, were preparing to pick up two foster dogs from North Carolina to bring them to their “forever” homes in Blue Bell, Pa.
“This is a voluntary effort,” said Young, a longtime pilot with the volunteer organization “Pilots N’ Paws” that works with rescue groups across the country to bring adopted animals to their new homes. “We don’t charge anything for it. We do it because we like to fly and we want to save dogs.”
