Flight Time played football growing up, and he wasn’t bad. One game in seventh grade he blazed through a 65-yard touchdown run, then threw down the ball to celebrate. Problem was he wasn’t actually in the end zone yet. That was Flight Time’s first clue that maybe he should stick to basketball instead. It was a good call, because only a few years later in high school he slammed his first dunk — and he was only 5’10”. Since then he’s picked up five more inches, way more dunks, and a nickname that works a lot better for basketball than football.
One of the Globetrotters’ most dynamic ball handlers, Flight Time Lang is also an admitted reality TV junkie. Twice in a little over a year, he was the one that millions of people watched from their living rooms, as he and teammate Big Easy Lofton had an exciting ride on two seasons of the Emmy Award-winning series, “The Amazing Race.” After finishing fourth in Season 15, Flight Time and Big Easy were invited back for Season 18, “Unfinished Business,” facing off against other teams that had competed in previous seasons. The duo got even closer the second time around, finishing second in the 11-team field.
Flight Time has also appeared on other popular TV shows such as “Hell’s Kitchen,” “The Bachelorette,” “The Price is Right,” “The Bonnie Hunt Show,” and “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?” where he accomplished the rare feat of correctly answering each question posed to him. Reference
