Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Rep. Laddie Shaw!
You’ve heard of the U.S. Army’s Golden Knights parachute demonstration team landing on the field in advance of an NFL game.
But today, coming off of Mount Roberts and landing on the field of the Senate vs. House softball game at Savikko Park, was none other than Rep. Shaw. He landed his paraglider close to 4 pm, in the middle of the annual nonpartisan ball game.
Such adventures are not uncommon for Rep. Shaw, who has been spotted gliding above Juneau several times this winter. After hours sitting in the House of Representatives, he’ll often be found running to the top of Mount Roberts. His last posted Mount Roberts run was 33 minutes 50 seconds to the tram platform on March 30.
Shaw, a retired Navy Seal, turned 70 on April 8.
(The House team beat the Senate team, 14-10.)
