Alby flew today from Currituck, NC to First Flight, Kitty Hawk, NC
|Nearly there, looking south toward Kill Devil Hills and the Wright Memorial at First Flight Airport|
|Alby and Eric Lambert at Kitty Hawk|
Not a hint of a cloud in the sky. A few miles south of Currituck I took a thermal that gave me 150’ above glide for First Flight; from then on it was all lift very little sink. I left the peninsula with 2000’ above glideslope for Kitty Hawk.
Alby landed at Kitty Hawk after first going for a trip over the Atlantic Ocean; approach to the airport was from the east.
[Ed: Eric provided this timeline summary of his efforts to help Alby get to Kitty Hawk. After his first commitment 5 years ago, a wait, months of watchful planning, diligent efforts, and then success.]
