No Go Six in a Row (+0 Miles)

The pilots took a test flight, but quickly called it no-go for the 6th day in a row. The winds are so strong that Richard, who took off in the wrong direction, had a hard time battling the headwind to get back to the airport to land! When will the winds release this migration? Let's hope it's tomorrow.
