Comment

Another complex day made simple by Skysight. We knew from the forecast that the wave would be good at Minden but only in the morning; we had to be out of there by midday to make a long distance flight. The wave in the afternoon in the Owens Valley was stupendous again. But strangely much further downwind than usual. We looked for an hydraulic jump but there were secondary and tertiary lenticulars so it wasn't a jump.
We have an LOA with Oakland Center and a Sage 2 clearance to fly in the flight levels. We have FAA approved lights on the glider.
Thanks to Stewart and Morgan for fetching the glider the day before, Tim and Brad for crewing and Jim for picking us all up the next day.
