We all flew. Larry Tudor is here. He didnt 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 wasnt flying fast.

evaporated, pretty thick stratus but Donizete said it was working fine. But it
got everyone else (he was out front, got just ahead of the shut down I think).
