Klippeneck 2019 - Day 7

Change over day so some folks going home 😢 and several new faces joining 😁. Again the day started with a lot of top cover but with the promise of better conditions in the afternoon.
Gliders were rigged and taken to the launch point.

Whilst it became soarable, the cloudbase didn't really get much above 5,000feet which is fine except the site is at 3,000feet.

319 with Howard

Most flying was done locally, however 370 driven by Denis flew to the Black Forest before flying the southern edge of the Stuttgart control zone and back for 260 Km.
