Alaskan Town Celebrates the Fourth of July by Launching Vehicles Off of a Cliff

Cars fly on the Fourth of July

In 2016 Alaska Dispatch News multimedia journalist Scott Jensen traveled to Glacier View, Alaska to document how the town celebrates the Fourth of July in a very special way each year. The Glacier View folks have plenty of food, a parade, and an airplane flyover, however, they take things a step further by launching vehicles over a cliff to watch them smash into pieces below. Scott released behind the scenes footage to answer some of the questions he received after his first story was published.
