Glide Flight 04
Successful Test Flights Continue
We had another great glide flight today, piloted by Mark Stucky and copilot Clint Nichols. A good start for what will be a busy year of flight tests.
As part of the test objectives, the pilots vented some water just before coming in to land, which produced a visible contrail.
Here is a nice picture of today’s flight and the water contrail (photo by Michael Fuchs).
