Euro 2000 Gliding Expedition
25th July 2000 - An excellent day in Southern Spain!
Flight trace (.igc)
|Conditions were generally better than yesterday with better thermals although lower cloudbases, around 8,000 increasing to 9,500' during the day. Both gliders flew a 540 km out and return to a point North of Cordoba in the Sierra Madrona (See trace below). The ASH went on to do another 160 km in a convergence that had set up South of the airfield in the evening. Tom also flew the ASW19 for over 4 hours. All in all an excellent soaring day.|
Great looking day, South West of Albacete.
