Airborne was a pop/folk band from the Vancouver area of Western Canada Originally started by  Darryl Bohn, Ron Hjorth & David Giddings in 1974.  All three played Acoustic Guitars, sang, and eventually wrote their own songs.  Similarities were made to the bands America & CSNY.  Bruce Johnston joined shortly after, contributing  his Falsetto vocals to create a very vocal rich group with tight harmonies.
