Comment

The forecast called for marginal wave conditions with weaker than desired low level winds and 35-40 knot WSW winds at FL180. We launched just before sunrise and immediately found wave. We headed south only to find weakening wave. The rest of the day was spent going back and forth trying to find stronger lift at the northern and southern extremes of the Minden wave corridor. We had some success midday with rotor cue that gave us good lift. Late in the afternoon - in mostly blue conditions - we followed our previous track. A very enjoyable flight was the result of a lot of patience and hard work. The DG is equipped with landing, strobe, and position lights.
Thanks Jackie for crewing.
