We also witnessed a serious but very inexpensive learning experience for one pilot which turned into a kind of fun team building exercise, as we worked to extract first the pilot and later the wing from the ravine deep behind east launch.
The last few days have reminded me what a great group of folks we have flying here. I was also reminded that Woody can be an excellent cross country wing man. He made it back from Punaluu on his freestyle wing on a normal easterly day! These late afternoon flights are also reminding me how breathtaking the scenery can be at the end of the day as the sun filters through the clouds. It's a surreal effect we just don't see earlier in the day.
Roll call: Woody, Bryce, Sebastian, Drew, Jonathan, George, Steve, Tom P, Sandy, Johnimo, Allegra, JJ, Larry Mac, me, Duck, Thom, Joey, McStalker. And maybe others I'm forgetting! Thanks to John and June for lunch and assorted liquid refreshments!
