Hi Roman,

Will put some once we have sorted them. Unfortunately our on-board
camera can not cope with the brightness of the landscape. Would have
been nice :-(

We will be here the entire next week. Currently the weather is not ok
for flying. We did a 1500m flight yesterday morning and had to stop as
the airport opened. Wind was around 13m/s. It then went up to 20m/s with
a lot of snow being pushed through the valley. Visibility came down to
some 10m and we could not fly. Same today with even stronger winds and
more snow. You could barely see the containers 10m outside.

There is a Google Earth test set up. It is just a simulation for now -
but at least the laptop is at the airfield. It will be turned off soon
as we leave the station. But maybe someone can test it right now and
give some feedback. If it works ok we might transmit some live
