 Here comes Richard with 10 crane-kids!
Here comes Chris with five birds! Chris's wing has a green edge.
Here's Brooke with two! Brooke's wing has a red edge.
Brooke lands and gives the thumbs-up sign. DONE!

Pilots Brooke, Richard and Chris. (Joe is missing.) Hear Brooke answer the question: What's it like to fly with the birds?

Brooke talks about the end of this LONG migration (hear audio clip) to the crowd that came to see the cranes fly overhead. By him are Bev, Richard, Walter, Chris, Charlie, and top cover pilots Paula and Don.
