Pilot Report

Pilot reports beautiful, clear, sunny skies- all wildfire smoke blown to the north (the Gorge is completely socked in with smoke); no significant weather, no turbulence.

Notes

Field Burning Report for September 18: despite smoky horizons, we knew we had excellent ventilation in the forecast; we burned 2 wheat fields in the south- no complaints.
