Yes, the winds are finally out of the north — but too strong for the planes and cranes to cope with! Light rain showers stretch across the flight path, and a low cloud ceiling at the next (Pike County) destination added more "no fly" reasons. They've gone 871 miles and hope to add more miles tomorrow. See you then!
