Out the Weather
No go today.
Heather Ray gives this news: "Depending on which pilot reported wind
conditions this morning, it was either good news or bad news. Brooke reported
a speed of 32 mph at 400-ft. altitude--not bad. Richard and Joe where both
reporting 9-10 knot headwinds resulting in only 18 mph airspeed. This would
make the next leg of the trip a flight of more than 2 1/2 hours. We're standing
down today, and likely tomorrow too with a weather system moving in this
afternoon that we'll have to wait out."
