Afterburner

And again a thousand k day in Bitterwasser. Johannes Kammerer flies them non-stop with his Ventus 2cxM. Yesterday he immediately added another to his 25th jubilee 1000 k. A long line of convergence under a huge spreaded cloud helped to its success.

Fractocumuli at around 5000 meters MSL marked the updraft line. But only for those who reached it when it emerged. Those who came little bit later did not reach this afterburner for the quick day. Fast lines had already formed at noon from Bitterwasser to the southeast. For a 1000 k flight you shouldn’t get bogged down for too long on the way to the first clouds in the north. They weren't good for much.

Gerhard Marzinzik ist von uns gegangen

Die Bitterwasser PTY mit allen Freunden weltweit trauert um Gerhard Marzinzik und seinen jungen Copiloten, die am 12. April 2022 bei einem Flugunfall in den Alpen im Pustertal ums Leben kamen.

Nach langer Reise....

Die Hängerreihe hatte ihre Mäuler schon lange weit aufgesperrt am Mittwoch, um endlich die Flugzeuge aus Bitterwasser aufzunehmen. Aber erst einmal musste der Zoll in die Container schauen.
