Today’s lead pilot Brooke Pennypacker had a rather uneventful 43 mile flight from Decatur County, GA to our Leon County, FL stopover this morning. Hopefully, he’ll have some additional details to share in his lead pilot report a bit later today but all eight Whooping cranes flew the entire distance and no swamp monsters were required to convince them to leave their travel enclosure.
The finish line is in site! Only 28 miles to go and we’re hoping the weather tomorrow allows us to deliver some Whooping cranes to the St. Marks NWR to kick of 2014!
