I swear, I had tears in my eyes!  It's alive!


2011-12-13 22:28:30z
144 MPH 95° alt 110574 ft
V1D4 CNSP-11
[APBL10 via WIDE2-1,qAR,CU2IE,PORTUGAL]

It's about 930 miles off the coast of Morocco.  If heading holds it will
pass more or less over Casablanca.

Cheers!

Hi all

I already forward the information to 2 lists of Portuguese hams, so
hopefully some will catch the packets from the ballon.
Congratulations to the team for the outstanding flight!
