Data

Data for individual flights attached to their recap pages below


Recaps for Individual Flights:

There are maps of the flight paths and raw TNC text files as well as comma delimited files that should work for most spread sheets for each balloon system. They are attached to the bottom of each individual recap page.

TNC and Spread Sheet files are fairly complete. They are missing the first few minutes of ascent and descent. The rest of the flight should be complete for each file.
