Day 52 – Departure Attempt

We arrived in Piatt County, IL 11 days ago and since then it has been extremely windy.

This morning the winds seem calm and from the southwest. Aloft, they are from the northwest, which means if the pilots can get the birds to climb out of the southerly flow of air, they should get a bit of a push.

If successful, we’ll be on our way to Cumberland County, IL.

If you’re in the Piatt County area and would like to head out to watch the cranes and planes attempt to leave, visit the Public Flyover page for location details.

    And the wild birds, with more freedom (no cage to find), mosey right on by?

    Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that things will work out today.
