Gulf Coast Plane Ride
On the morning of day two, editor Sara Peterson and assistant features editor Sarah Latta took a three-hour flight in a single-engine
plane to see the scope of the spill from the air. SouthWings, a nonprofit organization that spreads the word of conservation
through environment-focused flights, provided the tour.
