Distance Day

It's a distance day. We have been watching a mass exodus of crews and trailers from the Szeged Airport! With so many outlandings, we think the US pilots have done well today, having flown as far as most of the other teams. First, Tom Kelley (RI) returned on engine power. Then, Al Tyler (8H), John Cochrane (BB) and Bill Elliott (WE) all called in reporting safe outlandings with no damage. Ron Tabery (SS) and Garret Willat (W) made it home, also under engine power.

We have a very dark sky here with a heavy rain cell northwest of the field with lightening visible at regular intervals. Everyone is scrambling to get things put away or otherwise secured.
