Southwings' pilot Susan Lapis takes flight with The Economist in a story about reforestation in areas affected by coal mining. 

Burning the Future: Coal in America dramatically documents the devastating environmental, health and social impact our addiction to coal has on West Virgina, where mountaintop removal mining has obliterated 1.4 million acres of mountains and polluted the groundwater. Aerial footage featured in this film was from flights provided by SouthWings, thanks to pilot Susan Lapis.

You can watch this film on PBS this May, 2012.
