and Jim Rickey
Not a lot of activity today but watching the sky develop into high altitude waves was most interesting. Jim Rickey
used his still camera to try and get a time lapse video of the rotor development but we haven't seen it yet. Maybe he'll edit this blog.
|Rick Eason launching on one of his six or so flights this morning.|
|Rick likes to land on runway 7 making it easier to turn around and launch again.|
|Great position on short final, roll out right to the launch line.|
|No, he's not buried in the weeds, they're on either side of the landing path.|
|Now it's John Harbick's turn to launch and he had a fun flight with the clouds as markers.|
|The markers were high and mostly lenticular clouds from a coastal wave.|
|As the day progressed the lennies were more prominent and the sky started boiling.|
|These rotor clouds were twisting and turning quickly and violently.|
|The rotors moved off to the east and were replaced by multiple lenticulars.|

|Tyler Bishop flew one flight this afternoon.|
The day wasn't too busy, few pilots showed up. Jeff Richardson
was here learning to fly the DG100 but otherwise too few pilots made it a day of soaring.
