Four young Cantabrians to paraglide off Mt Kilimanjaro summit

From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 16 September 2019

After a chance meeting in a DOC hut, four young Cantabrians are flying to Tanzania today to climb Mt Kilimanjaro and paraglide off the summit. It's one of the world's most difficult paragliding missions, starting with an eight day hike to what's called the 'roof of Africa'. And it's the first time New Zealanders have attempted the flight. RNZ reporter Katie Todd went to one of their final training sessions.
