Operation Migration's Liz Condie sent this message today: "There'll be no planes and cranes in the air this morning, but everything that isn't nailed down around here will undoubtedly be flying today." You guessed it: WIND. This is weather-delay day two in Franklin County, Alabama on a weekend where wild weather is making news headlines in many parts of the nation.

Watch Them Depart!
The flyover viewing location when they leave Franklin County is the old airport parking lot at Russellville Airport, just off Hwy 243, right beside the fuel tanks. Be on site no later than 7am and dress warmly. Also remember that you could make the early morning trip in vain if the weather/wind turns out to be unfavorable for a flight.

Sunday today: No Classroom Activities


Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in cooperation with the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
