Taking flight over the Trinity in Fort Worth

Flyboarders were preparing for Fort Worth’s Fourth.

Damone Rippy soars over the Trinity River at Panther Island Pavilion on Sunday. He and teammates in Aquafly were getting comfortable with the river to prepare for Fort Worth’s Fourth, the annual festival, where they will flyboard in afternoon performances, said Matt Oliver of Trinity River Vision. The flyboarders shoot into the air and can swim underwater with water-propelled jetpacks. For details about the free festival, visit
