A Message from Bill, our Search & Rescue Pilot:
“Sorry I was a little bit late. Took off at 11AM and two minutes later my headset quit. Had to land and change batteries in it.
You can tell the participants that it was smoke that first attracted our attention then the signal mirrors confirmed it. You weren’t where I expected you to be so it was a good exercise….the plane was in the vicinity but it was your signaling that drew us in to your exact location. Attached are a couple of pictures of the group. Can’t go below 1000′ above ground in the City, would go to 500′ in unsettled area”.
