Vertical Challenge

We made an appearance yesterday at the Vertical Challenge air show at San Carlos Airport put on by the Hiller Aviation Museum. Eureka looked wonderful, and the flag deployment operation the team had worked on all week was a success. We're hoping next year the winds will be more co-operative and allow us to land during the show!

I noticed the crew member attending to the deployment of the flag was wearing a harness to keep in in the gondola. Was this a requirement, or just a self imposed safety precaution?

I'd also like to suggest a much larger flag next time. Once the ship got closer to the ground it could be easily seen, but from a distance it had a very difficult time competing with the size and majesty of the ship.
