Thank you!

Absolutely spectacular!
Flying tight courses seems like something fun to try out. Great photos of incredible vistas. Thank you.

Default very very nice

Wow.... nice flight, nice story! Reminds me of helping the Voyager navigate. The software would round the turns. Not good for waypoint passage and logging a world record. They had to manually fly to the symbol and then re-engage the autopilot for the current leg. None of those turns were as sharp as yours though. Your short wingspan helps!!!
Jungfraujoch is beautiful. You made me dig up some old views on Kodachrome. Thanks again.
