WEYERS CAVE, Va. -- Clarence Peifer loves airplanes, so Sunday he decided to take his birthday to new heights by flying in a single engine airplane.
In his earlier years, Clarence has flown all over the world to countries like Belize, China, and Australia.
Many of those trips were church missions and Peifer even helped build two churches in Belize.
He says he's always loved being in the clouds.
"When I got my first paycheck, I worked a whole week for five dollars, and spent it all on an airplane ride," says Peifer.
He said if he could fly anywhere he hasn't been yet, it would be South America.
