Windy Morgan County, IN (+0 Miles)
November 11, 2007: Migration Day 30

Photo Operation Migration

Wrong-way winds are keeping them grounded today in Morgan County, Indiana. Keep busy with our journal questions or updated life story pages for cranes 710, 714, 727, 721. 726 and 733. If your crane doesn't have any new notes, it's because he or she has been performing just great. THat means flying and following well, taking off and landing with no problems, and making no mischief in flight. What could be better than that?

In the Classroom

  • Today's Journal Question:
    (a)
    See the Migration Data page for the 2006 migration to see when they arrived in Morgan County last year. How long were they there?
    (b-for bonus) Chris siad, "Top cover pilot Paula advised us that we couldn’t climb more than 1200 feet above ground level to stay out of Indianapolis’s airspace. With smooth air and a 6 mph tailwind, we didn’t see much need to gain altitude, and were content to cruise along at 800 feet AGL (above ground level)." How does that altitude compare with the height of Chicago's Sears Tower? See >>
