Dec 31st – Nice flight to see the year out with

A lot of shower acitivity forecast to the North West, so we headed there first and had good climbs to 13,000′ and 100kms of convergence, but each time you looked around it felt like the door was closing behind you, you certainly couldn’t reverse your course. What made a long flight possible was a narrow band, maybe only 20km wide that remained well proportioned and gave good climbs between Kiripotib and Mariental. To the West, showers, to the East almost blue.

It was Roger’s first flight and his first 1000km as you can see from the picture. Roger is now in charge of the blog photos and his first offering is below.
