Stop in Wisconsin (+
46 Miles )
Now we're cooking! The young birds knocked off another 46 miles as they flew today to Green County, WI. "Crane #828 was very eager to fly this morning," reports ground crew member Heather Ray. "As the aircraft took off one at a time to get into position, #828 squealed very loudly, wanting to be let out of the travel enclosure. when Bev and I opened the two large panels to release the birds, this young male crane was the first one out." Richard van Heuvelen was today's lead pilot. The ground crew dismantled the travel pen and packed up for the trip to Stop #5 in the next state: Illinois!
