President Vladimir Putin might go hang gliding with a flock of Siberian cranes as part of an event aimed at preserving the endangered species
"The pilot's role is that of the flock's leader," said Yury Markin, head of the Oka State Biosphere Nature Reserve in the Ryazan region. "They show the flight route [to the cranes]."
If Putin decides to glide with the cranes, he will wear a white coat and an artificial beak so that the birds can recognize him as one of their own, Markin said, Russian News Service radio reported. He added that such suits had been worn by the scientists who raised the cranes.

He can’t out draw the Long Ranger and Sword fight with Zorro.
That is because he ain’t no community organizer, whatever that is.
I think he is jealous of Chuck Norris....
But I like the artificial beak.
“He once ran a marathon, because it was on his way.”
Technically, a hang glider has no motor. It appears from the article that he would be using a hang glider style wing with a trike mounted power unit.
I once hang glided in an area where there was an eagle’s nest. One of the eagles came out and was flying off my wing tip. As we we soared the ridge together... it seemed that the two of us were sharing the air in complete harmony. After I landed another hang glider pilot came over and told me that I shouldn’t have been flying in that area. He said that the day before one of the eagles had landed on top of someone’s wing and started tearing holes in it.
I'd say his narcissism has grown into a mental illness.
It is very sad that the Ruskies have a leader who could kick our “president’s butt any day of the week. One little judo chop to the throat from Putin would have Obama down for the count.

Heh, a sucker is born every minute that naively accepts Russian propaganda.
I suspect much more of a Russian Nationalist, than a Communist or even a Socialist.
The Birdman of Sverdlovsk?
Rule a country without imprisoning and/or killing his political opponents?
Oh heck I know, but at least Putin makes an effort to appear to be a real man. How can our troops look to the clown we have and be inspired?
I mean Truman was commanded an artillery unit in WWI; Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commander in WWII; Kennedy was blown out of the water in a PT Boat and had sex with Marylin Monroe; Johnson was a Navy Veteran in WWII and was from Texas; Nixon was a Navy Veteran in WWII and a commie hunter, President Ford was a Navy Veteran and very athletic, President Carter was a Navy Veteran even if a crazed bunny did almost get the better of him; President Reagan was in the Army Air Corps and had the nickname Dutch; George Bush Sr. was a decorated WWII aviator; Clinton may have had no military service but at least he is a prolific womanizer. George Bush Jr. actually did fly jets in the military and could have led an assault on an alien space ship had the need arisen.
Then there is Obama... he used to hang out in gay bars and bath houses, and he throws a baseball like a girl. His marriage to Michelle looks like a sham. I am convinced that Larry Sinclair is telling the truth. The entire country would be relieved if an intern accused him of having sex with her in the oval office. He is pathetic.
Obama is the most dangerous and skilled of the all: Communist mole.
Putin on the Ritz
I gotta hand it to Putin—that’s a pretty cool, and brave thing to do.
Maybe Barry could compete by base jumping? Or bungee cord jumping?
He’s doing this for one reason only: He was given permission by Chuck Norris.

Google Torgau program. American units are getting trained with full variety of Russian gear in Russian bases and Russians does same with Americans.
I think it is a great expierence on both sides. A lot of tankers would like to ride a T-90 and fire live ammo from it.
It works since about 2004.
