High altitude flight over Lafayette, CA
A windless clear day, summer solstice 2010. I wanted a rapid recovery to keep the flight time short so I used a custom built spool with an attachment on the axel for an electric drill.
Created the map to a smaller scale and lower resolution in order to make a map including the largest extent possible from the flight.
