ABC 13 Anchors Chosen to be Part of Lynchburg Airshow
Len Stevens and Shelley Basinger
Lynchburg, VA - Two of the anchors at ABC 13 have been chosen for a once-in-a lifetime experience.
On Monday afternoon, the president of the Lynchburg Regional Airshow Jones Stanley presented Len Stevens and Shelley Basinger with letters saying they had been selected to be a part of next month's event.
Len will get to take a ride with the Blue Angels in the F/A 18 Hornet, and Shelley will be the alternate.
Stanley says the pilot will take Len on the ride of his life.
"He will know he's going fast. If you think about it… when you're doing 600 knots, you're doing about 680 or 685 miles per hour. Knots are nautical miles so... yeah, he'll see things go by quickly," Stanley said.
The Lynchburg Regional Airshow is May 21st through 22nd.
