22.30 Flight Control Update

The late evening shift in the Control Centre are all busy on laptops.

Kevin Stass is looking after the ATC, Martin Harris has his eye on the latest weather forecasts whilst I've been given the keys to the website as Piers has gone home for a very well deserved sleep. Don and Hannah are also catching 40 winks whilst they can.

The French Team (Sebastien Rolland & Vincent Leys (F-PPSE)) are racing away having crossed the Pyrenees and we're all debating what their tactics are. At the moment the highest any balloon has been is to 12000 feet, with the lowest being 600ft.

Great to see so many people putting shouts out on the message board. Keep them coming, and tell all your friends about GB2010.

More at midnight.
