This mornings flight was a tactical one - inflated before sunrise and ready to take off just as the sun hit the skyline. Short and sweet as the intention is to grab a second flight 30 miles away in South Dakota before the winds kick in. Flying over the tow caused quite a stir with the local newspaper and radio following the flight live. We almost made a flight from airport to airport but the wind direction meant using a different launch site - we had arranged several the night before to make it easy to get airborne fast this morning. The winds were relatively light but quicker than forecast and we arent sure now if we can make our second planned flight this morning.
