New Flyover Photos And TV News Report Of Our Work

Mar 12, 2016

On March 8, Coal River Mountain Watch's Vernon Haltom took WOWK TV reporter Hillary Hall on a flyover with Southwings volunteer pilot David Warner. This was David’s first Southwings flight and Hillary’s first flight in a small plane. We got a good look at the destructive expansion of mountaintop removal on Coal River Mountain, the areas not yet permitted or started, the dismal progress of “reclamation” at the idled Edwight and Twilight sites, and a quick look at the KD#2 and Rich Creek sites near Charleston. 

You can see Hillary’s news report, with flyover footage, here. You can see the photos here and here.
