Gordon (AussieF3B), from the Orlando Buzzards contacted Miami Mike and I earlier in the week concerning another 8 hour slope flight (a LSF 5 task). Monday looked like a great day to try for it. The Landfill was open from 5am-5pm, an approaching cold front (read Wind) was arriving, and Gordon's group was off on Monday.
Gordon, Jody Miller and Kris Von Nostrand, arrived at 7:30am Monday and immediately began setup. After trying to have a continuous flight for almost 3 hours, our intrepid visitors had to abort.
Unfortunately for all involved, the wind gods refused us slope lift. Eventually the wind arrived at noon, but a little to late for any 8 hour flight attempts (in daylight). On the flip side, once the winds did come up, we had some great flying on the West slope. And Gordon, Jody and Kris got to try their hand at some genuine slope and combat flying. Eventually a rain storm approached, Gordon and crew packed up and we all headed home before the 5pm closing. Better luck next time guys.
