On January 9, the FAA granted a waiver to Operation Migration so the journey south can resume. The team will be back in place on Jan. 11 and will take to the skies on the next day with favorable weather. Full reports will be posted by Journey South on days they fly. No-fly days will be listed on the news page. Florida, here they come!
