The favorite part about my job is being able to experience breaking news first hand. On Saturday, I wasn’t able to do so, but Record photographer Michael McCollum was. He watched a powered parachute take off without a pilot during a rally for the vessels at Tracy Municipal Airport. It looked a little something like […]
