Local flight at Cerdanya.


Our plan to get high over the Pyrenees and fly into France was thwarted by the arrival of an enormous thunderstorm in the Cerdanya valley. The single launch of the Duo was short-lived. We decided to cut and run to our next destination of Vinon.

Sat Pic at 1600 shows Pyrenees erupting with cbs, looking good over the Southern French alps though!
