It turned out to be a nice day. We flew at about 2:45. I'd say Steve was over 400+? I was over by 150ft. We both flew about 15-20 minutes. The wind shut off and we had to come down. There was a few thermals over the highway and lz field that kept us soaring a little longer. I bought all the bread, milk and toilet paper on the way home that I could possibly stuff in the car and tie on the glider rack in prep for the big storm ;) Anybody have a snowmobile with a glider rack? Paging Spoons...Spoons! Let's fly soon!
Unofficial report: We had a pretty nice day at Hyner today...not bad to have 7 in the air in December, T-Bone launched first at around 11 and got over an hour of airtime. I went 2nd and had say a 20 minute flight. Wind was getting lighter as the day went on making soaring more challenging, and causing some sledders.
Will H., Dennis, Sam and Chuck were next off. Steve launched later and the sun came out and blessed him with the flight of the day with 1:45!
I'm not sure but there may have been more HG attempts to try again after Steve was in the air...
Thanks to Will P., Pat and Julie for being the support crew!
Let's fly soon!
The wind went slack in the afternoon at Hyner. Found some lift at the point but couldn't find enough of it to stay up.
Great flying at Hyner today! Tom B led the charge. Dennis, Sam, Chuck B, and Will P all soared. And then in another league, pg Steve launched early and landed late.
