Monday morning Professor and pilot Paul Shepson and aircraft mechanic Brian Stirm (Purdue Univ.) flew ALAR out of Barrow, heading back toward Indiana. Johannes, Stefan, Kyle, and I (Kerri) ("research flight crew" from the Univ. of Heidelberg and Purdue Univ.) wished them the best of luck and watched them fly off into the distance. Their first stop was Fairbanks, Alaska, from which they sent us some beautiful photographs of their flight over the Brooks Range!
