Looks like Saturday will be the day that we can expect an improved
weather situation in south Texas. Things get fuzzy in the forecasts after
Thursday. The front just keeps hanging around when we would normally expect
(hope) that there would be a high pressure centered just south of New Orleans

out and met with the Airport Manager and Airport Administrator (who flew in from

We all flew. Larry Tudor is here. He didn’t fly. I took off just
before 10, I was first to ping off and only made it about 20 km. Most of the
crew bombed about 40-80 km. Donizete was the only one to get out, he landed
about 140km out on purpose as the winds eased off and wasn’t flying fast.
Shortly after 1130... mehr
