Hopefully as long as the wind is roughly NW or SE in direction the launch areas you've planned will work. I can get the FW-58W off the water with full crew, fuel and 600 pounds cargo weight. Should I make a groundnet for Lake Manawa?

sure. If you dont mind to work on a groundnet for Manawa, we can have a plan B. Specially if wind comes E or W.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

OK just a quick note: First coding for the groundnet had some glaring errors. :? I've fixed them and you should have all of the Eppley water mooring positions, and the 3 moorings actually inside Manawa Lake itself.

If you've already uploaded these Israel, you might want to patch them with this fix.

A little more than an hour to...

Our departure from Omaha.

http://flightaware.com/resources/airport/KOMA/weather

The weather in Omaha is currently really kind, good visibility, few clouds at FL250 --we will be flying today much lower than that over the state of Iowa. Winds are around coming from 040, which benefit our take off the Missouri River facing North as planned! :D

http://flightaware.com/resources/airport/KMKE/weather

Our arrival conditions in Milwaukee are not so kind, with some low level overcast at 1500feet, and possibly some snow-showers. Maybe time to land a frozen lake ? :oops: :mrgreen:

I'll appear an hour later, I hope. And I didn't have time to finish the US Coast Guard livery for the Albatross, I'll release it after the tour.
