YM makes an aerial rendez-vous with the ground crews.
|A second day in the Southern Alps has been thwarted by the arrival of a stalling cold front. Rather than wait for two days and a possible clearance we decided to cut and run to the North West and the edge of the weather. Everyone flew in YM whilst repositioning to Feurs in the Central Massif.|
