Expedition Kondor - Der Traum vom Fliegen

Mit dem größten Vogel der Welt im Gleitflug über die Anden, das ist der Traum von Judy Leden. Die Weltmeisterin im Drachen- und Gleitschirmfliegen ist besessen von dieser Idee, seit sich ein Kondor ihrem Flugdrachen Mitte der 90er Jahre bei einem Rekordflug vom höchsten Vulkan Ecuadors bis auf wenige Meter näherte.
