Payne and Tito in Wave…Again!
Jim Payne and Dennis Tito are at it again! You can follow their flight at Jackie's blog. Here's a message we received from Jackie This morning.
Below are links to near real time satellite tracking for Jim and Dennis. they have contacted "great wave" and Jim has sent several photos. I have a blog started with the photos embedded. Might be too much moisture later in the day, but makes for spectacular photos now. I will not send any other emails through the day, but will occasionally update the blog with comments and photos. (2 more pics waiting!)
