En español: Vuelo de expansión de sobre.

El pronóstico fue para una buena onda estratosférica. Hizo puntos de prueba de aleteo y vuelo en FL500, FL600 y FL200. El levantamiento fue tan fuerte en FL500 y FL600 que tuvimos que abandonar el elevador para evitar que se elevara la parte superior de la banda de datos para nuestros puntos de prueba.

Vistas hermosas. Regresó apresuradamente a la tierra debido a las nubes entrantes.

Creemos que esta es la altitud absoluta más alta del mundo en remolque aerodinámico (nivel 451) y la mayor ganancia de altura en remolque aerodinámico (44,400 pies). Pasaron 62 minutos desde la liberación del freno hasta FL500.

In English: Envelope expansion flight.

The forecast was for good stratospheric wave. Did flutter and flying qualities test points at FL500, FL600, and FL200. Lift was so strong at FL500 and FL600 that we had to leave the lift to keep from soaring out the top of the data band for our test points.

Beautiful views. Hurried back to land due to incoming clouds.

We believe that this is the world’s highest absolute altitude on aero tow (FL451) and greatest gain of height on aero tow (44,400 feet). It was 62 minutes from brake release to FL500.
