Tangier Island is a small crabbing town located in the Chesapeake Bay, within the state of Virginia, in the USA. It has unique qualities because of its relative isolation from the rest of the region. In this video I am flying with my instructor Tom and friend Alex after a day trip from KGAI in Gaithersburg, Maryland, in 2012.
