to Pike County, AL (+ 52 Miles)
All RIGHT! They added another 52 miles today as all 14 birds took off behind Joe's ultralight for the flight to Pike County, Alabama. They got off to a late start (8:10 am) because they waited for the fog to go away. But tougher challenges were ahead. The pilots faced not only fog but also frost, rough air, headwinds and military helicopters that scared the birds. After two long, hard hours, they are one stop closer to the goal. Tomorrow's weather forecast looks good for a flight. How many total miles have they gone?
