Recent Flights from King/Dunn site

Jeff Wilson on Saturday(Click on photos to enlarge)
Miller Stroud on Saturday
Last weekend was soarable as was yesterday and apparently today. Sunday was the big day with Memphis pilot Miller Stroud flying 105.5 miles to somewhere in Tennessee. James Anderson, Buddy Cutts, Marshall Nichols, Kevin Gross,Jeff Wilson ,Ed Brashier, Keith Nunnally, Philip Dabney, John Furman, Mark Fink and the Memphis gang were all here. Yesterday was great as well although the gains were in the 1200' range compared with 4000'+ on Sunday. Miller reportedly gained 7 grand during his flight to Tennessee in his Atos. Soon we will have two launches.........the present one which faces 170 degrees and a new one which should be about 140-150 degrees.
