Jiri Flight

Jiri flew from sandpach the other day. His plan was to make it to Salmon Holes where my dad was fishing. That way he would get a lift back with him.

Conditions were light and challenging but he made it all the way to the Bold Head. The end of that beautiful coast line. First time ever, now we know it is possible !!

He flew back from Bold Head to Salmon Holes, but my dad was gone, the flight took just over 2 hours to complet. I went to pick him up. Awesome flight, well done Jiri.

You can see below his flight track, if you have  google Earth it gets even better, it can be in 3D!!!

The flight path is shown on the image below (click to see a larger image), or open the file here on Google Drive to get more details. You can also download it then open using Google Earth to see altitude during the flight.
